READERS ARE SAYING....
"With this book, Dr. Singh has found one more way to bring sound S&OP practice to a broader audience. This book provides a step-by-step approach to implementing and improving the S&OP process that is both pragmatic and thorough."
-Julie Fraser, President & Principal Industry Analyst, Cambashi
"Dr. Singh has detailed 'five steps to success' - admittedly, language that may sound too much like that in trendy (and often useless) self-improvement books. But keep reading; the key word is 'detailed.' Each step- Understand Customer Demand, Analyze Inventories, Routinely Create a Demand Plan, Balance Supply and Demand, and Implement S&OP - is carefully defined, then specifies goals to be achieved, major tasks involved. With his five steps, Singh puts real meat on those bones."
-Russell Goodman, Editor in Chief, Supply Chain Brain
"Sales & Operations Planning is a vital process for companies that take an operational view of the supply chain and its strategic nature. Yet many organizations struggle with implementing S&OP effectively. For these enterprises, Harpal Singh has laid out a clear, step-by-step path toward maximizing the value of S&OP. This pithy and no-nonsense book should be on the reading list for any Supply Chain executive considering embarking on S&OP, as well as those looking to increase the impact of their existing planning process."
-Andrew K. Reese, Editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive
