We've been successful with S&OP because we’ve taken an iterative, 'Crawl, Walk, Run, Sprint' approach to implementation, testing, measurement and advancement... It's a non-stop journey. The only constant in business is change, whether its market disruptions, economic volatility, a natural disaster ... or you name it: they all have varying degrees of impact on the process. Achieving a 'Sprint', may only happen for a matter of seconds before continuous improvement kicks in and you re-evaluate. But we have an agile foundation in place to help us deliver better, more consistently — regardless of the circumstance.
