New comprehensive S&OP Whitepaper


Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) is a framework which enables value to be derived from the 'planning capability' of an organisation. At an organisational level, S&OP aligns this 'planning capbility' with the business and supply chain strategy.

GRA's Carter McNabb and Shanaka Jayasinghe examine how an effective S&OP framework can enhance decision-making by providing visibility and agility in portfolio, demand, supply and logistics management. They also look at why many large organisations are unable to effectively leverage the benefits of S&OP.
