Improving Financial and Supply Chain Planning Alignment

How to Eliminate Bottlenecks in Cross-Functional Planning


Supply chain and finance teams, despite working together for so long, still don’t have a common language for producing effective plans.

How can you achieve supply chain excellence if the teams responsible for delivering it aren’t even speaking the same language? They might not even agree on what excellence is.

Creating a financially viable plan with increasingly complex supply chains is almost impossible while disconnects exist between finance and supply chain teams.

Watch our on-demand webinar with Lora Cecere (Founder, Supply Chain Insights), where we explored new research into:

  • The current disconnect between Finance and Supply Chain
  • Creating cohesion between Finance and Supply Chain
  • Planning for unexpected events
  • The foundations of an executable and financially viable plan
