Nowadays, many companies have implemented S&OP although often without the desired results. Meetings between sales and operations often pay more attention to operational problems than to tactical and strategic issues. Yet it is precisely by achieving alignment at those levels that you can strengthen your supply chain.


The S&OP training course is a combination of theory and practice. Playing The Fresh Connection game enables you to experience the importance of working together and creating alignment between different disciplines. By the end of the training course, you have gained the right knowledge to use S&OP effectively. You learn how managers can make better decisions, how to establish links between strategic objectives and operations, and how to set up your S&OP process for optimal results.
