Why You Should Attend

16th Annual Cross-Functional Alignment through S&OP/IBP

Sales and Operations Planning provides the key communication links for top management to coordinate the various planning activities in a business, but also remains one of the least understood aspects in Supply Chain Management.

Better integration between functional areas in a business is one of the major payoffs of S&OP. Once collaboration between the top levels of the functional areas is developed, it can be translated into detailed plans that are in line with top level agreements. This results in a set of common goals, improved communication and transparent systems.

The fence mending process in a business and the cross-functional alignment through S&OP will figure prominently on the agenda. By attending this marcus evans pan-European and cross-industry conference you will be able to learn how to establish and optimise an S&OP network, and how to move the focus from Supply Chain Optimisation to financial benefits in the overall business. We will debate how the role of a one-number plan is likely to change and discuss the differences in planning. What can be said is there is a lot to play for – the challenges extend from synchronising forecasting, creating a common plan, to improving the decision making process by engaging the top-management. Join us for thought-provoking discussions and insightful case studies.
