How to find and eliminate gaps in S&OP assumptions

Human nature prioritizes short-term outcomes over long-term goals, but all too often, those decisions lead to unintended consequences. When you’re fulfilling customer orders and managing a complex global supply chain, there needs to be a neutral arbiter that can support and challenge the decision process to keep balance over time.

In our first installment of Anaplan’s S&OP webinar series, leaders from Accenture and Anaplan shared the top three ways to improve business performance by making changes to the S&OP process.

In the second installment, you’ll learn how a single platform can help align finance and supply chain around robust scenario planning to find and eliminate gaps in S&OP decisions.

Attend this session to learn:

  • The often-overlooked role of finance in S&OP
  • How to align operational plans with financial forecasts
  • How to scenario planning to make better, more informed S&OP decisions
