Item description for World Class Sales & Operations Planning: A Guide to Successful Implementation And Robust Execution by Donald H. Sheldon...
Due to a lack of state-of-the-art guidance, most firms still are not achieving the substantial end-to-end supply chain, profit and shareholder value improvements that the sales and operations planning process can help deliver. World Class Sales & Operations Planning provides the guidance needed to help maximize results. It delineates how to accomplish successful top management planning using a step-by-step approach and explains how to implement and execute robust S&OP process excellence. While achieving excellence takes practice, you can expect to begin seeing results almost immediately by following the guidance provided in this book.
