S&OP in a COVID-19 World

Date: June 25, 2020
Time: 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. CT


Don SheldonDon Sheldon, CSCP, CIRM, CPIM-F, Lecturer | Binghamton University School of Management

Donald Sheldon is a globally recognized supply chain professional. He has over 35 years in business management, including Fortune 500 executive level, general management, and marketing and production, and more than 15 years experience in international consulting on topics including S&OP, ERP excellence, Six Sigma, supply chain management, Lean, financial analysis and total quality.


The forecast is very foggy for most as COVID-19 affects businesses and their supply chains around the planet.  Planning to avoid the landmines of changing demand and customer behaviors, top management needs to be rethinking their JIT strategies and considering flexibility, specifically scalability.  Sometimes your company just needs to be first to market need which can require planning for the unknown.  These decisions and the planning that precedes it, cannot be left to the materials department or the master scheduler.  Top management needs to be strategic about priorities, flexibility and scalability. 

Donald Sheldon, author of six books including World Class Sales and Operations Planning (J Ross Publishing) and frequent speaker at ASCM conferences will discuss robust S&OP and how it can help during these crazy times.    




ASCM will close on Thursday, July 2 at 2 p.m. CT and Friday, July 3 for the Independence Day holiday. We will re-open on Monday, July 6.
