What We Do

Our focus is helping organisations to create and sustain a Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) process with strong cross-functional partnership and alignment and which delivers tangible financial benefits.

 

Blueglass Consulting offers a unique perspective and range of capabilities on addressing this challenge.

 

Rather than driving S&OP as a supply chain process, we adopt an overall business perspective and build the engagement and participation of commercial and finance teams along with the supply chain function.  This helps the business to anchor S&OP as a core business process with clear and tangible benefits to the business.

 

We offer tailored support to clients who want to create a new S&OP or improve an existing approach.  This support typically includes one or more of the following elements;

Audit/Healthcheck of Existing S&OP

  • Apply standard assessment frameworks or create tailored framework

  • Carry out healthcheck assessments on the key components required for strong cross-functional S&OP

  • Identify good practice and areas for improvement

  • Create corrective action plans and/or continuous improvement plans

  • Identify key success factors for cross-functional deployment and/or sustainable collaboration

  • Overcome collaboration barriers and building capability in the organisation to deliver cross-functionally

Change Management
