Straight Talk - Supply Chain Insights - Sales and Operation Planning #269
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.

Supply Chain Insights - Lora Cecere Talks About The Supply Chain Insights Global Conference #261
Does the supply chain space need another  conference? There are far too many today. Most follow a format of  sponsors, paid speaking and booths. The same content gets hashed again  over and over. In this podcast, Lora makes an argument for the need for a  different kind of conference. One where business and technology leaders  roll-up their sleeves together and imagine the supply chain of the  future together. With 95% of the industry stuck at the intersection of  cost, customer service and inventory, Lora thinks that it is important  to challenge the status quo. So if you are planning to go to industry  events which often focus on functional excellence of source, make and  deliver, consider stepping up to the plate to Imagine Supply Chain 2030  in an event designed for extreme networking of supply chain innovators.  This year’s event is in Chicago on September 3rd-6th. #supplychain, #conference, #imagine, #2030, #new technologies.
