Dynamic Insights: Sales and Operations Planning

Introduction

Enabling effective sales and operations for optimal outcomes

Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP, sometimes called Integrated Business Planning) is a management discipline that enables executives to assess trade-offs between multiple interdependent business components: demand and supply market opportunities, customer service, inventory investments, production capabilities, supply availability and distribution constraints. The objective is to produce a plan that best fits the company’s strategy and opportunities. S&OP addresses problems that result from uncoordinated and unbalanced decision making in sales, marketing, operations, manufacturing, supply chain product development and finance. The S&OP process amalgamates results from a group of connected planning processes to mediate a balanced solution. This brief Dynamic Insight research survey of 13 questions will provide an evaluation of your organization’s efforts and you will receive our prescriptive guidance based on your specific responses.

Are You Qualified? The survey for this market research is designed for sales, operations and supply chain professionals who are involved with S&OP processes. Solution providers, software vendors, consultants, academics, media and systems integrators may participate in the research, but they are not eligible for any incentives and their input will be used only if they meet the role qualifications.
