Learn about the shift from traditional SCM to “hands-free” integrated business planning.

In this debut episode of Masters of Digital Transformation, we take a peek inside the mind of Sanjiv Sidhu, Co-Founder and Chairman of o9 Solutions, Inc. and one of the world's finest entrepreneurs and pioneers in the integrated business planning space.

Sanjiv discusses how he has spent his career optimizing planning processes for some of the world’s largest companies by shifting away from traditional supply chain management to a hands-free, and fully integrated business planning (IBP) model through digital transformation.

Using the right tools, our companies can move from walking to running.

Key Takeaways

  • In the current "new normal", you have to look at sell-out data vs sell-in data. Collaboration on a weekly basis is a must here, and you need to enable a powerful secret weapon: velocity.
  • The goal of what Sanjiv calls 'hands-free IBP' is to reduce the number of human touches. It's about preventing delays, decreasing human errors, and creating natural silos.

This will help you to answer the 3 important W's:

  • 1.

    What is happening and why?
  • 2.

    What is going to happen next?
  • 3.

    What should I do about it?
  • You do not have to crawl for long before you can run. Enterprises can enable the acceleration of IBP quickly. With the right tools in hand, enterprises can move forward quickly and get to the running phase of their processes.
