Planning for disruption

Join us for an exciting day in Bern, where industry peers and academics share their challenges and best practices. Let’s plan together for disruptions!

We are in the middle of a perfect supply chain storm. An unprecedented pandemic, war, extreme weather, material shortages, skyrocketing container prices, Taiwan tensions, all making supply chain management a daunting task. Any plan is outdated before it is even agreed upon. Demand and supply disruptions do not wait for the monthly S&OP process cycle, not even for the executive review. Digitalization and sustainability pose new challenges – and opportunities. How to develop a robust forecast and plan under these circumstances?

We invite you to a live network event, where we discuss how you can utilize planning processes in a highly volatile supply and demand environment. During this exciting day in Bern, Switzerland, industry peers and academics will share their challenges and best practices. Let’s plan together for disruptions!
