Maverick* Research: It is Time to Move Beyond Traditional S&OP — Introducing Decision-Centric Planning

“Traditional, distinct, cyclic planning processes such as S&OE, S&OP, and IBP will no longer suffice in delivering strong business results in today’s volatile environment. To thrive, companies need to rethink their planning concepts powered by strong technology support. Decision-centric planning is the answer.” – Pia Lund, Sr. Research Director, Gartner
