About this paper
By putting the sales and marketing perspective back into operational planning, companies thrive because they carefully align what they make, how much, where, and with what materials with real market demand. The end result is profitable revenue growth and inventory optimization. This paper explains how to synchronize and optimize demand and supply through reshaping executive sales and operational sales planning (ES&OP) using a market-driven approach.
