Businesses are dying faster than ever as they fail to drive adaptation to an increasingly more complex and volatile set of circumstances.  Management is starving for relevant information, much of which is obscured and distorted by antiquated models, methods, rules and tools held over from decades past.  What will it take to change this?

It's time to get your team started with a Demand Driven transformation! This workshop reveals a new management framework that enables a flow-based system of management to drive return on investment performance and adaptation for sustainability and improvement in the longer range.  The new framework is called the Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise (DDAE) Model.

Bring the Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise Introduction 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.
