Historically, supply chains focused on historical performance trends with less emphasis on long-term projection through financially-driven S&OP. The volatility of the current market has highlighted the need for improved alignment between the finance and supply chain functions to improve supply chain preparedness, drive responsiveness and increase margins / profitability. Topics to be covered include: 

  • How the successful alignment between finance and supply chain operations will enable companies to manage risk and achieve better supply chain planning / execution
  • Leveraging financial planning models to improve margins by improving working capital and customer satisfaction
  • Developing insights into how real-time supply chains (LIVING Supply Chains) can contribute to financial outcomes
  • Developing insights into how digital technologies can enable better planning, reduce risks, and reduce revenue at risk
  • An overview of key trends, opportunities and challenges
