In 2019 only 35% of manufacturing leaders rate  their Sales and Operations Planning processes effective. In contrast,  65% rated the processes effective in 2016. In this podcast, Lora Cecere,  founder of Supply Chain Insights shares the reasons for this  precipitous decline. The remedy is enlightened leadership. To make the  shift, companies need to define what defines supply chain excellence and  how it ties to the business strategy. Then manage the supply chain as a  complex non-linear system to ensure the recognition of constraints, the  design of buffers, and the impact of changes in mix. Only 30% of  companies have “what if analysis” and only 50% of companies tie the  output of the tactical plan in S&OP to execution. As organizational  complexity increases—with seven S&OP processes using five different  technologies—getting the basics right matters more than ever.Tags: Sales and Operations Planning, IBP, Supply Chain Excellence, Demand planning,
