S&OP Special Interest Group Meeting 

S&OP Special Interest Group Kick-off Meeting 
November 07, 2017 09:00 AM - 03:00 PM 
Join us for the initial S&OP SIG meeting, where we will discuss the importance of differentiating operational versus executive S&OP. 

Thank you for indicating your interest in the S&OP Special Interest Group (SIG). SIG's are typically a series of meetings based around one topic and in this case, we plan on this group to run for at least 10 sessions around the idea of improving the Sales and Operations Planning process. We appreciate you and your organizations interest in this SIG.

This meeting will begin with learning and sharing member companies journey's in Sales and Operations Planning, what is their baseline today, and where do they want to go. We will delve into what types of topics within S&OP that members would like to see addressed in this series of meetings.

We will then tackle the first topic with Professor Enno Siemsen. He will lead a discussion on why it is important to differentiate operational S&OP (using mix-forecasts) from executive S&OP (using volume forecasts).

Wrapping up the day we will decide, as a group, the type of frequency members would like to see for this series of meetings.

Webcast will not be available for this series.
