Episode Description

The buzz: “A goal without a plan is just a wish” (Antoine de Saint-Exupery). Sales and operations planning is a critical first step for the success of any business. The challenge? Doing it well. Best practices for a seamless supply chain: Gauge demand (avoid over- or under-stocked inventory). Optimize demand with supply. Collaborate with stakeholders and suppliers. Get buy-in across the organization. Simplify and publish the plan. “Wash, rinse, repeat.” The experts speak. Kanth Krishnan, Intrigo Systems: “"In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing” (Theodore Roosevelt). Eric Stratmann, Albemarle Corporation: “If you can't measure it, you can't manage it” (W. Edwards Deming). Windie Wilson, SAP: “Great moments are born great opportunity” (Nikola Tesla). Join us for Seamless Supply Chain Challenge: Plan Ahead, Get Ahead.
