Next week I’m going to be attending the Sales & Operations Planning Summit conference being held in Boston on September 9 thru 10. Supply Chain Matters will be providing commentary and I will especially be seeking out the current state of S&OP practices across various industry settings, as well as common process related challenges.  No doubt there will be many that are related to cross-organizational alignment and change management.   The other positive for this author is that I will not have to get on a plane to attend, but then again, will have to put up with Boston traffic congestion.

The planned agenda of presenters is rather interesting and includes representatives of Coca Cola, Jarden, Nikon, Research In Motion, Sharp, Stanley Black & Decker, Sony, among others.

If you would like more information or interested in registering, you can click here.  If you plan on attending, send me an email or seek me out, since I would enjoy meeting and speaking with you.
