New London, NH (PRWEB) December 15, 2009
Oliver Wight Americas, Inc., the global management consulting firm that developed S&OP (sales and operations planning), has released its newest whitepaper, "The Top Ten Myths and Realities of S&OP," authored by Colleen Crum of Oliver Wight and Fred Baumann of JDA Software Group. Colleen and Fred outline the costliest misconceptions that continue to plague companies around the world.
The global management consulting firm's newest whitepaper details the revolutionary capabilities of the S&OP process, which continues to evolve, elevate, and transform. Without continual refinement, however, some companies are at risk of perpetuating outdated S&OP processes that may create both short- and long-term consequences. With a solid executive management plan in place though, S&OP has been shown to promote significant improvements in processes and spur overall business performance.
"S&OP is an ever-changing methodology, vital to today's business world," said Colleen Crum, Managing Principal of Oliver Wight Americas. "Many companies well-versed in S&OP still occasionally get caught up in the myths surrounding it. The goal of this whitepaper is to lay to rest the issues that may present a problem now or in the future."
