Businesses are recognising the supply chain has a crucial role to play in delivering business strategy; often the last to know, supply chain managers frequently fire fight to meet demands of customers and reacting to crisis. Our belief is supply chain management should be discussed in the board room equally as much as finance and operations.
Interim managers have made a choice to work as interims; they enjoy the challenges of meeting a new crisis head on; being external they bring a depth of knowledge built from their experiences and quickly gain control. They arrive like ‘Mary Poppins’ in a storm and leave before the dust settles and order is restored.
Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP); is a decision making process acting on a single set of numbers. It is still growing in popularity and being adopted by wide sections of industry. It applies to any organization where there is a need to align supply to meet demand. Often S&OP is the main ‘umbrella’ process for change projects.
