Change with Impact

Implementing S&OP

S&OP with impact. Take sales and operations planning to the next level

According to sales and operations planning expert, Tom Wallace, S&OP is 80% people, 15% process and 5% tools. In most organisations, however, tools and processes take precedent over people. We can help you change that.

Implementing S&OP

Sales and operations planning (S&OP) is an integrated business management process that executive teams use to ensure focus, alignment and synchronisation across all functions in the organisation.

At Implement, we have devised four key principles to help organisations drive an effective S&OP project within change management:

  • Create impact – link the success criteria to business goals and behavioural performance.
  • Ensure commitment – generate a high level of executive involvement and cross-functional engagement.
  • Get started quickly – define the process together with the project to gain experience and involve all stakeholders in co-creating the system solution.
  • Use a structured approach – employ standard methodology as a starting point and develop from there.

Take a look at our Sales & Operations Planning Handbook that provides an outline of our approach as well as knowledge and experience from past and ongoing S&OP projects.

If you believe that your organisation could benefit from this approach to S&OP, get in touch, and let us help you put it into practice.
