How to break the siloes in your supply chain and align around the volatility of your customer?
Many companies struggle with S&OP because their applications don’t serve them well in these volatile times. The consensus process is not fit to integrate this fast-changing environment and its impact on demand. The outcome is mostly after the fact and the result of a discussion driven by the needs of siloed stakeholders instead of the outcome needed by the organization. Little is understood about what drives the demand that the organization is dealing with and what its components are.
In this webinar, Piet Buyck, CEO at Garvis, will explain how organizations can put the market and customers central in their planning processes by combining human knowledge with AI. He will talk about assumption-based planning, and how it gives a voice to the conversation owner who can provide clarity on the drivers of the demand, their variability, and the risk profile and how it impacts the different departments of the organization.
