Virtual session

Using S&OE to support timely decision-making

On Point: Free bite-sized webinars

15 April

Adapt your S&OP plan to reality in the short term to exploit emerging opportunities and risks

How can your business formalise cross-functional decision-making by empowering the right people and as a result exploit the emerging opportunities that arise from week to week while staying out of firefighting mode?

Join us for this short webinar where you will get insights into why sales and operations execution (S&OE) is crucial in supporting and taking over for S&OP in the short horizon. We will dive into the key decisions to make and look into the process steps, including the meetings that take place over the course of a month. We will also emphasise how the S&OE process is linked to operational planning.

Our friends from Arla Foods will join us to put the process into a practical perspective. They will be represented by Jakob Lignell, Director, Global S&OP, who will present how they implemented their S&OE process and how it supports timely cross-functional decision-making.
