Senior managers and boards of directors do themselves a disservice by failing to learn about their supply chains. Collaboration among supply chain personnel, senior management, and board members is an advanced concept, but there is no doubt that such teamwork can drive meaningful improvements. This session will discuss the use of sales and operations planning as a vehicle for enhanced collaboration, innovation, and growth. The presenter will explain the process of opportunity identification, planning the collaboration effort, managing risk, and reaping the payoffs.
