The Key to Success: Enterprise Social Collaboration Fuels Innovative S&OP
Mar 06 2017
As a Sales and Operations Planning leader, you have a few principal responsibilities: setting priorities, planning and executing your supply chain strategies, driving incremental improvements while quickly adapting to changing market and customer requirements, and linking changes in demand to changes in supply while keeping in mind the financial results.
What’s your most fundamental challenge? If you’re like most S&OP professionals, it’s keeping all of your stakeholders in alignment. But, typically the technology you use does not provide the right framework for keeping everyone in sync. You’re under new pressures to include new internal and external stakeholders who may have been overlooked in the past. You have more influencers and occasionally interested participants than ever before. You have an ever-growing set of inputs and data sets that have to be managed alongside these relationships.
