Sustainability goals and product transformation is reshaping what you sell, how you produce, and how you serve your customers.

Common energy & resources
problems by role

  • “Controlling logistics cost is becoming more difficult: volatile fuel costs and disruptions at ports and other transfer stations threaten efficient operations and profitability.”
  • “We have Limited Visibility and Collaboration with Tier 1, 2 Suppliers around constraints and disruptions.”
  • “Managing the hazardous supply chain is getting tougher: we are subject to extensive regulations and laws governing the handling, storage, disposal, and remediation of hazardous substances.”
  • “Our batch planning systems are not providing real-time answers to demand and supply change what-ifs.”
  • “People Productivity – Most work is offline, with low adoption of systems of engagement.”
  • “Changing consumer priorities are accelerating: consumer and regulatory concern over genetically modified grains, soybeans, and other crops challenge static sales plans.”
  • “We have limited visibility to NPI, Marketing, & Price Changes – Extremely manual processes.”
  • “Managing unique seasonality and product variances across my areas is very challenging.”
  • “We have limited CRM Opportunity pipeline visibility – Not systematized.”
  • “Managing product transformation is difficult: we are producing a higher mix of specialty products like waxes, lubricants, and chemical feedstocks, products that generally have higher margins.”
  • “Volatile raw material prices & market demand - we are exposed to rapid changes and demand shifts.”
  • “Our AOP /finance process is disconnected from the rolling forecasts of our S&OP process.”
  • “We have tight margins. Low net profit margins in refining operations, combined with the high debt levels are typical in our capital-intensive industry.”
  • “Our S&OP is conducted on PowerPoint – A big productivity drain and highly ineffective meetings.”
  • “We have been largely focused on status reporting (Performance to Date ) vs. Insight into forecast gaps and gap closure actions.”

Aim big, start small, iterate rapidly.
