S&OE: When Bad Things Happen
to Good Plans

Featuring Katherine Ross, former Worldwide VP of Customer & Logistics Services at Johnson & Johnson

You’ve invested in improving S&OP processes and technology for years but your team still spends 70% of their time discovering and fire-fighting unplanned exceptions. As Gartner has said— “There’s S&OP …and then there’s the real world.”

So now what? Complement your current planning process with better sales & operations execution (S&OE) for hidden leverage to optimize and automate your supply chain.

In this video, Katherine Ross, former WW VP of Customer & Logistics Services at Johnson & Johnson draws on her decades of industry experience to share:

  • The central contradiction in efforts to digitize supply chain today
  • How an S&OE process can unlock hidden leverage for your supply chain
  • Why the systematic capture of unplanned exceptions should be a key focus
  • How a data-driven, collaborative approach collapses response times
  • S&OE best practices that help hit critical SLAs at lower cost
