S&OP in One Day! 2017

In March Involvation organised S&OP in One Day! for the third time: the main training and networking event for those who want to know more about S&OP. More than 100 S&OP professionals participated in the interactive presentations and brought new insights into practice in the S&OP business simulation The Fresh Connection. Leadership in S&OP was a major theme during the day as well.

Country estate De Horst in Driebergen was the perfect host location for S&OP in One Day! for the second time in a row.





The day was kicked-off by Alfons Willemsen, one of the Involvation partners

No rest for the wicked! Sharing of knowledge and experiences was an important aspect of the day.

Newly gained insights were put straight into practice in The Fresh Connection, supported by Involvation consultants.

Intense discussions about how to translate the chosen strategy into practical decisions in the S&OP process.

After each “S&OP meeting” in The Fresh Connection, the teams received feedback about the results of their decisions from Jeroen Scheepers, consultant at Involvation.

Mark Hoppenbrouwers, Rituals supply chain director, explains how S&OP was introduced successfully in Holland’s fastest growing company.

All smiles after great results!

Congratulations to the team with the highest score in the simulation.
