Steelwedge Launches Agility Webinar Series: Spotlights Strategies and Best Practices for More Resilient Integrated Business Planning

Tom Wallace, Chris Turner, Roddy Martin Among Industry Experts to Drive Dialogue

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 6, 2012) - Steelwedge, the leader in cloud-based sales and operations planning (S&OP) solutions, kicks off a new Agility webinar series this week about the evolving leverage of S&OP to deliver resiliency and optimize growth in the face of an increasingly volatile business environment.

The monthly webinar series is set to engage dialogue, share ideas and outline strategies on planning agility through S&OP, a topic that leading IT research and consultancy, Gartner, says is the most pressing area of interest for large manufacturers.

Chris Turner, co-founder of strategy, innovation and operations consulting firm StrataBridge leads the line up of industry pundits on Tuesday, February 7: 'The S&OP Control Paradox: Folly in a Volatile World?' He will be joined by Ed Lewis, Vice President of Product Planning at Steelwedge.

The monthly webinar series will also include new case studies, fresh research and thought-leading perspectives from the industry's best respected thought leaders including noted planning expert and author, Tom Wallace, and global Supply Chain consultant Roddy Martin.

"After decades of building finely wrought supply chains, it took just a few days of 'Black Swan' events in the past year to break them apart," says Didi D'Errico, Vice President, Marketing at Steelwedge. "As this is forcing boardroom-level attention for more resilient global distribution and development solutions, we want to facilitate the dialogue between industry thought-leaders and the planning and supply chain practitioners charged with working out integrated business plans to make it happen."
