Join Kathleen Geraghty, Director, Supply Chain Services at Celestica on Monday, April 27th at 5:00 pm for the Kinaxis-sponsored session Smarter, Faster S&OP.
There has been growing consensus that sales and operations planning (S&OP) is a critical business process. In fact supply chain research would confirm that S&OP is the single biggest opportunity for improvement for supply chain planning. Yet, many companies fall short of the expectations S&OP touts. The year ahead promises a new set of challenges that could further impede S&OP value. Kathleen will examine some global trends and recurring challenges that delay, or worse, distort the output of S&OP. What are companies doing to run smarter, faster S&OP cycles? The critical importance of quality forecast – and leveraging predictive analytics to get there. How you can eclipse competition by tweaking your process? Finally, we will consider a Celestica case study that demonstrates the impact smarter, faster S&OP has had to a global telecom company.
While at the conference, please stop by the Kinaxis booth #507 to say hello!
