Bridging the Gap Between Finance and Supply Chain Teams

In a fast-paced S&OP process there are plenty of checkpoints and often too little time to validate the wide range of variables. Planners prepare numerous gap-closing scenarios, but to be truly effective these plans need to be converted to the language of senior management – impact on costs, revenue, margins, etc. This requires real-time feedback on financial implication of any volume change and the ability to quickly validate the assumptions and risks associated with it.

In this webinar, we will explore the various levels of financial integration within the S&OP framework as it relates to the maturity of the organization. A healthy S&OP requires continuous monitoring and reconciliation of the operational business plan against both budget and strategic plans across planning hierarchies.
