New London, NH (PRWEB) November 14, 2011
Eric Deutsch, a principal with Oliver Wight Americas, has written a white paper on the role that coordinators play in Integrated Business Planning and Sales and Operations Planning processes.
The white paper is based on Deutsch’s experience as an S&OP coordinator and project manager for a multi-national specialty chemical and biotech firm. The author shares the wisdom of his experience and points out pitfalls to avoid. He also demonstrates how the coordinator is the “right-hand person” to the executive process owner for each step in the process.
The article highlights the benefits that coordinators gain, including access to leadership and key management, camaraderie within the network or coordinators, and an increased potential for upward mobility.
The article also details the performance expectations of the coordinators for each step of the IBP or S&OP process.
The author addresses the roles of coordinators, sometimes called leads, of each step of the S&OP/IBP process: Product Management Review, Demand Review, Supply Review, Financial Appraisal, Integrated Reconciliation, and Management Business Review.
