  • Demand latency and the long tail of the supply chain.
  • Channel and supply visibility
  • Risk management and the impact of variability
  • The role of managerial overrides and the impact on planning
  • The management of the supply chain as a complex system
  • Supply chain as a complex system of measurements to manage
  • Translation of operational actions into balance sheet metrics
  • The impact of outside-in processes
  • The need to use channel data
  • The role of S&OP
