Collaboration is not about “being social”, it’s about making information available, connecting people and improving business processes.
Last week Alan Lepofsky, VP and Principal Analyst, Constellation Research and Trevor Miles, VP Thought Leadership, Kinaxis participated in a webcast on 'Purposeful Collaboration: What It Could Mean for Your S&OP Process'. The two discussed how even with heavy investments in Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP), many organizations are not achieving material or sustainable breakthroughs. This is often because they are executing a sequential, disjointed process with contributors operating in their narrow functional box. In this recorded webcast, learn how purposeful collaboration can connect content, conversations, colleagues and communities to drive improved business outcomes. Topics covered:
- Harnessing and capitalizing on “working social” in a B2B environment
- Using the key tenets of purposeful collaboration to enable effective decision-making, resolution and consensus building
- Capabilities required to facilitate purposeful collaboration in S&OP
- Changing the mindset away from the individual supply chain / S&OP functions to connecting functions and most importantly, people
