I’ve got another presentation on the go. We are participating in the Sales & Operations Planning Summit taking place on January 27 - 28, 2011 in Las Vegas, and I will be presenting a session called, “Continuous Sales and Operations Planning for High-tech/Electronics Manufacturers.” Here’s an abstract from my session: Planning has long been segmented into different isolated activities that reflect organizational structures and functional goals, leading to long, ineffective, and inefficient planning cycles. For maximized value, sales and operations planning (S&OP) must be a truly cross-functional activity that can directly and simultaneously address both individual departmental goals and joint corporate objectives. In this session, attendees will learn about the specific technology and process requirements to achieve a continuous and collaborative S&OP capability as it applies to the high tech and electronics manufacturing industry in particular. Despite being pretty busy next week with two events (I’m also presenting at the Bio-manufacturing Summit 2011 earlier in the week) I will be tweeting so follow me at @Milesahead. And stay tuned to the blog after the event for a round-up of my news and views. Also, if you’re at the event, please stop by the Kinaxis booth and say hi!
