THE ADAPTIVE S&OP WORKSHOP FOR EXECUTIVES AND SENIOR TEAMS

The volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world is here to stay, and it is wreaking havoc on manufacturers, distributors, and supply chains throughout the world. Companies are failing at a faster rate than ever because they are failing to adapt to this highly dynamic and risky environment. A new rule has emerged – adapt or die. But how to drive adaptation when conventional tools and processes are failing to keep pace with these challenges? Adaptive Sales and Operations Planning completes the Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise framework and restores the original promise of Sales and Operations Planning for modern circumstances.

This seminar is designed for executive teams looking to dramatically change the trajectory of their organization and overhaul the way the business connects strategy to operations and operations to strategy.  The seminar is typically delivered on an in-house basis to executive teams.  A list of scheduled public sessions is available below.

Bring the Adaptive S&OP Workshop to your executive team! If you have a team that wants to explore a new way to think about S&OP, we will send one of our endorsed instructors to you.  Contact us about options.
