Is a senior supply chain planning and strategy consultant with over 20 years of international industry experience and significant expertise in S&OP and demand-driven supply chain management. He works with manufacturing and distribution companies that wish to make a transformational improvement in their E2E operations and supply chain performance and does so through helping them to adopt 'demand-driven' planning and execution.

Many manufacturing and distribution companies are moving from the traditional ‘forecast push MRP’ to demand-driven supply chain management (SCM). Demand-driven SCM is an ‘end-to-end’ supply chain planning and replenishment process that enables companies to achieve their planned service levels from up to half the average level of inventory and requiring significantly less throughput capacity – irrespective of the level of demand volatility or lead-time length.

Demand-Driven Supply Chain Management is the go-to source for industry supply chain/operations executives and students. It describes, in a readable but rigorous manner, the ‘what, how and why’ of the demand-driven SCM process. The key themes in the book are: what is demand-driven? why is demand-driven so effective? how to operate a demand-driven supply chain? and how to adopt the demand-driven process in your company? The book has been written in such a way that it doesn’t require reading from cover to cover. Readers can quickly grasp the essential concepts from one of numerous self-contained sections that present the book’s key concepts from different perspectives.
