Testimonials

We invited GRA to run a workshop to educate the broader business on S&OP, help us design a next level S&OP process and map out the requirements and next steps to implementation. We have made significant progress with S&OP since the workshop, the key aspect is that it has been accepted at all levels and there is commitment to the process which was the big hurdle.
