    In the past few months, the cost of freight has hit sudden, all-time highs, rendering regular budget planning impossible. How can we get better visibility of costs to pre-empt and avoid additional expense? AGENDA Mitigating long term freight cost volatility with e2e, SKU-level visibility What permanent changes are needed to address business risk? What drives unexpected costs to your freight spend? Blind spots: what's preventing or limiting visibility and how can these be eliminated? Data sources: which sources are most reliable and practical for better visib

    As we witness piecemeal recovery from the pandemic, and extreme fluctuation due to localised lock downs and restrictions and their effect on consumer behaviour, it's become even more vital to know what's coming next, and where demand will come from. Ticketed events can yield early insight into recovery, acting as a vital data source for those who need to pick up early market signals to be able to avoid shortages and manage supply. In this discussion we'll discuss what insights some companies are already gleaning from events, whilst sharing key intelligence on what events tell us, how you can b

    The pandemic has prompted a shift to non-store channels, including delivery and click & collect, accelerating a trend that was already well established. For many, the response has been tactical with a 'whatever it takes' approach to serving customers however they wish. In tandem with the drive to reduce waste, there are important questions about whether the status quo is sustainable or whether a fundamental re-think and re-design of supply chain operations, enabled by digital technologies, is now an urgent priority. If so, how? AGENDA Next-gen omnichannel retailing - e2e visibi
  4. Although there continue to be many challenges in arriving at a robust plan in the first place, this discussion focused on how to close the gap with execution or, in other words, reduce time lag or latency of deviations from plan being predicted and detected to being successfully managed. Latency definition: how quickly can you predict something is going to happen? How quickly can it be filtered in the hierarchy? It’s fundamental to how the SC and finance are organised. Latency is a combination of data availability and process Latency -1 (predictive) Scenario planni

    The Covid experience has underlined the importance of agility and being able to adapt to changing circumstances. In many cases, existing S&OP / IBP processes have struggled with a much higher demand for scenarios, cycles having to begin before the previous cycle is finished and a highly unusual operating context requiring decisions to be escalated or reviewed more frequently. How has a concurrent (as opposed to linear or sequential) planning approach helped and what was the journey to from business case to implementation?

    Dynamic network design

    Recent progress with Covid-19 vaccination is nothing but positive but we are still likely to encounter more volatility of supply conditions in future. Therefore, the idea that your network is something you review every two or three years won't work in this scenario and, instead, a more frequent and dynamic network design planning process will be required.

Summary of a practitioner only discussion held on 3rd February 2021 with members from Unilever, Kraft Heinz, General Mills, Corbion, Tate & Lyle and O-I: What has worked to manage the balance between S&OE & S&OP? Dedicated focus on reinforcing S&OE, often by centralising and formalising roles and escalation / de-escalation processes and triggers; Demand managers aggregate the demand but product managers (with P&L) responsibility decide which segments, customers and products to prioritise; S&OP meetings sometimes had longer horizons up to ten y

We need a new way to think about SC that enables us to be more agile. Being agile enough to deal with uncertainty is the goal. Is Covid a one off? We don’t know. It's about being ready for what comes. Agile tech, good process, all help prepare companies for what comes. What are the obstacles to dealing with volatility? Being target driven: facing up to the reality. Nobody wants to bring bad news. Pushing f
