The acclaimed summit brought to you by Innovation Enterprise, will explore the supply chain process and how effective operational planning is central to business success.
Over the years, Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) has gotten a lot of attention from business leaders as it is crucial if companies are to hit performance targets. S&OP is a set of planning and decision-making processes designed to balance the supply of products or services with the demand. S&OP enables business leaders to link day-to-day operations with the companies goals, operational planning, and financial planning. With the ever evolving economy, it is more important than ever that companies try to improve their S&OP processes in order to achieve true integration. Today corporate leaders want to be able to communicate to their employees that integrative behaviour is expected.
The S&OP Innovation Summit will bring together the world's most dynamic senior executives operating in the areas of sales, operations & planning. Through 25+ keynote presentations, interactive workshops, networking opportunities and access to online presentations on-demand post-summit, the summit will explore how to create true collaboration between processes.

Or even the key considerations that should be considered when structuring S&OP demand planning?
