How much is S&OP misalignment costing your business?

More than ever, businesses today operate through a complex, interconnected system of handoffs. Often what looks like underperformance in one department is in fact a symptom of underlying misalignment between several business units, each acting on competing priorities.

Without adequate management visibility, the costs of S&OP misalignment can quietly add up to a significant impact on operating margin. But solving the issue takes sophisticated coordination between sales, procurement, warehouse, manufacturing, and many other stakeholders.
