Why choose to work with us?
Whilst there are many supply chain consultancies operating in the field of S&OP, a common feature in all the established providers is that they are supply chain functional experts. Given that one of the most common failure modes in S&OP is a lack of cross-functional engagement, this is a significant gap.
Blueglass Consulting can go beyond the detailed technical specifications of process, systems and data and help businesses to fundamentally build engagement and commitment across their organisation to make S&OP really work for them.
