SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 19, 2015) - The San Francisco Roundtable of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) will host its 2015 kickoff event Thursday, January 22, 2015 at FAZ Restaurant in Pleasanton, CA. 

Have you ever been curious about how production is scheduled for one of the biggest brands in the world?
Why there are so many warehouses, or where exactly are all those Coca-Cola trucks going? 

At the intersection of "strategy" and "execution" is Planning, the mystical side of the supply chain. Production plants, warehouses, and trucks are the most visible to the masses but behind the scene are decision processes that drive the Make, Move & Buy decisions for every supply chain around the globe. Learn the intricacies of Demand & Supply Planning and how the Sales & Operations Planning processes attempt to synchronize sales & marketing dreams with supply chain realities.

Please join Rob Haddock, Group Director Planning Coca-Cola Refreshment for insights as to how Coca-Cola Refreshments leverages planning processes to meet the needs of the US markets. Based at corporate headquarters in Atlanta, Rob is also a leader of more relevant and powerfully consistent programs for the global CSCMP Roundtable organization.

This is a dinner event with presentation and much networking time built in, so participants can enjoy the purpose of CSCMP: Connect - Learn - Lead. Event Time -- Thursday, January 22nd, 2015 -- 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm.
