Accelerator Days – Virtual Edition

6 sessions in a virtual format

“This training provided an overview of what S&OP is all about. This overview enables me to see the bigger picture instead of treating each planning process individually.”

Supply Chain Manager, Food industry

As Solventure Academy, we organize open training sessions or Accelerator Days to boost your knowledge and insights in supply chain planning. Up to you and your team to discover the ambition and challenges of S&OP and learn how to bring it all together. As a result, you will strengthen the alignment within your company and, most of all, let S&OP become the heartbeat of your business.

Subscribe and come out of the session with at least one improvement point for your S&OP process. Furthermore, you will have specific ideas to start working on it immediately.

Obviously, the Accelerator Days target professionals involved in those specific planning processes of the supply chain. However, we strongly recommend the participation of anyone with responsibilities in any domain that is affected by or involved in managing the Supply Chain Triangle. So, are you from demand planning, customer service, procurement, sales, inventory management, human resources, manufacturing, IT and systems integrations, or other, and do you carry a responsibility in guiding the business in the right direction, we will be glad to reserve a seat for you. And while you’re at it: why don’t you bring along some colleagues and come with your own cross-functional team?

What do we expect from our attendees?

  • a prerequisite for the participants is that they are familiar with most of the basic supply chain concepts; we’ll provide some preparation material upfront to all attendees
  • a commitment to engage with us and the other participants, preferably during all of the 6 sessions
  • a good internet connection and sound and video (webcam) capabilities

Welcome, all of you!

Below we’ve listed some Frequently Asked Questions and their response. Just open the text box by clicking the question you also had in mind. In case you’d like more information on other subjects, use our contact form to get in touch.

We know from experience that industry-specific decisions with regards to the S&OP process are made at certain levels. But this does not mean you cannot learn from them. By understanding why this industry tackles their process in such a way, you broaden your S&OP vision. Next, we encourage our participants to interact with each other and share experiences. Every process improvement has its own successes and possible pitfalls no matter which industry you are in. Step out of your comfort zone and learn from your peers.

We strongly recommend the participation of anyone with responsibilities in any domain that is affected by or involved in the Supply Chain Triangle. Meaning anyone from supply chain but also sales, finance, procurement, IT,… is warmly invited. Certainly when you are planning/executing a supply chain project that affects multiple departments, bring your colleagues along so you can shape one vision to take your project to a next level.

One thing that is guaranteed is that you’ll go home with at least one working point that you can implement in your own process the next business day. For each role attending this program, the takeaway can be quite different, so why don’t we let previous attendees do the talking:

“It is a good training and it indeed provides you with a good insight between the practical and theoretical way of thinking and pushes you in some way to think more out of the box than stay within a kind of ‘comfort’ zone”

“This training provided me with an overview of what S&OP is all about. Having this overview enables me to see the bigger picture instead of treating each planning process individually.”

“The topics as such are not new to me, but how it is presented and communicated gives a refreshing view. By reusing provided examples, I can trigger my own team members and challenge managers to take the next step in S&OP maturity.”

After filling out the registration form you will receive a personal confirmation email within the next business day. This confirmation email validates that we welcome you to the Accelerator Days – Virtual Edition.

We send out the invoices in the same week the first session takes place.

We understand that certain circumstances can prevent you from joining our session. Let’s see if you can join one of the upcoming sessions or if a colleague can step in and use your seat. When we are not informed and have a no-show, we will charge the participants fee.

“I was also looking for a training session that would give me more insights on the different roles within the entire S&OP process. Thanks to the Accelerator Days I now have a better view on those roles besides my own day to day operation.”

Demand Planner, Food industry

“The Solventure Academy team brings a lot of energy to these sessions. Some icebreakers and light discussions at the beginning of each session created the perfect vibe to encourage each participant to engage.”

Business Process Analyst, Manufacturing company

“This was the 3rd time I followed a training by Solventure. Knowledge & theory wise the training is build up correctly. The Solventure Academy team is also able to explain the theory well with examples from the field to make it more clear.”
