The March of the Lemmings
"We are still testing the early research findings, but the role of the budget and the impact of financial leadership shows some statistical significance between effective and less successful processes. Shown in Table 1 are the differences. Tight coupling of the budget to the S&OP process is detrimental. The budget is obsolete when published. Why? Markets change. They are not static. S&OP’s role is to maximize opportunity and mitigate risk while following the principles of the budget. What does this mean? For example, instead of integrating cost data, analyze costs based on mix variance against the goals of operating margin. Similarly, analyze inventories based on strategy versus integrating budget data. The focus is on balance sheet performance. Only lemmings tightly integrate financial data to supply chain analysis."

Four Strategies To Deploy As Supply Chain Hits Main Street
"Be Careful on Customer Service Automation. Customer service automation is an ongoing opportunity. As companies attempt to eliminate labor, voice automation and bots are technologies du jour. Perhaps success will come later; it is clearly an early stage deployment. The customer experience is rough. I suggest that all supply chain leaders call their support lines and accept responsibility for customer service. For example, Friday, I spent an hour on the phone with Bonvoy (the new Marriott branding) to get disconnected three times. Today, as I tried to get service from a local network provider, the response was, “Sorry. I would love to help you out, but I am a new bot and still learning. I have trouble understanding long questions. Try something like, “What’s my bill?” You can also use one of the options here.” New bots are a waste of everyone’s time, and the voice automated Bonvoy service ineffective a holiday weekend."

S&OP: Can You Make Decisions at the Speed of Business?
"Invest in Descriptive Analytics. Allow business users access to data through the use descriptive analytics. Layer technologies like Microsoft Power BI, Qlik, Spotfire, Tableau, and Thoughtspot on top of planning technologies. To improve S&OP execution, focus on helping business users access data at the speed of business. This means less focus on traditional reporting, ERP and portal strategies. Make discussions data-driven using descriptive analytics layered on top of complex technology landscapes. The average company has five-to-seven S&OP processes and seven-to-eight advanced planning technologies. As a result, getting to data is a barrier."

Who Will Win?
"The wider market is decision support. The goal is to improve organizational decision-making by unleashing the power of analytics. The supply chain planning market is narrow and used by only 3-5% of back office personnel. The new goal is decision support for the masses. The new solutions deliver answers better, faster and easier. Today’s solutions are expensive, long to deploy and hard to use. The greater the M&A activity, the worse the issue. (JDA, E2Open, Infor, and Logility grew through acquisitions.)"

What Value Are You Getting From Planning?
"Why should you care? Today market turbulence abounds. Spiraling transportation costs, tariff shifts and increased expectations for customer service sparks new interest in supply chain planning. Operations complexity coupled with the rise in demand volatility increases corporate risk. (Reference Figure 1. The larger the bubble, the greater the risk.)

Outsourcing–procurement, manufacturing and transportation– decreased visibility and increased data latency. As a result, we introduced black holes into the supply chain. Additionally the move from regional to global supply chain management decreased visibility. Yet, companies continued to invest primarily in ERP systems."

Yowza! A Nine-Step Decision Process to Help Guide Supply Chain Planning Selection
"A business decision for supply chain planning should focus on the selection of the technology that can drive better business outcomes. This often in direct opposition with the solution that minimizes the IT budget. For example, there are very few planning pilots where Oracle or SAP beat the competition on capabilities. I often tell clients, “What good is a cheap solution if it does not solve the business problem?” A focus on IT standardization is one of the primary reason for low business user satisfaction in the recent study shown in Figure 5."
