Getting the Brightest & Best: S&OP Talent Management

S&OP requires dedication, consistency and qualified key decision makers in order for a company to succeed in achieving its desired business objectives. Great effort must be made to identify individuals with the necessary leadership qualities so they can perform essential S&OP functions and drive it as a key strategic tool.

In this session I discuss how a solid grounding in S&OP functional requirements is essential for anyone joining the S&OP established family of leaders within an organization. It is therefore crucial that HR is aligned with your S&OP objectives. Whether you are adding specialized practitioners, mid management managers or executive level leaders, soft skills in collaboration, management and negotiation are fundamental requirements for any team member.

You will learn:
  • How your company can avoid the pitfalls of the “wrong choice” for highly visible S&OP roles
  • How to identify the necessary ‘soft skills’ for your organization based on its strategic vision, S&OP leadership needs and functional strengths
  • How to take a collaborative approach to the selection process to avoid miscommunication and waste of valuable resources
