Topic: Sales and Operations (S&OP) Made Easy

Speaker: Janet Steiner

The Sales and Operations Plan (S&OP) is a process that allows the organization enables all stakeholders to participate in translating the business plan into an actionable the plan.

S&OP provides one plan or set of numbers for everyone to use.

  • What will be sold and when.
  • How much inventory is needed and when.
  • What needs to be built/bought and when.
  • Where the inventory is needed and when.

Any S&OP content that’s being delivered to an executive audience must be more robust than just rolling up the same material from previous process steps.  Gain insights about the importance of knowing your audience knowing your audience and how that helps you to provide relevant data and metrics for executives and develop solution-based consensus.
