Best described, the S&OP can be one of the true processes within an organisation that actually involves high proportion of key stakeholders.
In a smaller sense, not unlike the innovation piece within an organisation does an activity genuinely touch multiple business functions. Your skill set needs to be agile, analytical but pragmatic – don’t forget your personality of managing multiple stakeholders with varying KPIs should be achieved.
Successful delivery of the S&OP requires vision and hard data [no time for story telling!] through Sales & Marketing, Supply Chain, and Manufacturing to the Warehouse & Logistics business functions. All key stakeholders in between require collaboration and facilitation.
The path to excellence should always be at the top of your mind for your current and future Supply Chain executive. Strong awareness of process, software and data processing or optimisation.
