The survey polled over 300 hundred multi-national companies from 16 different industry sectors

"This new survey by The Office for Business Architecture (OBA) and London Business School finds that whilst some organisations using S&OP have achieved significant benefits -
many companies still haven't overcome the many challenges to achieve a successful implementation."

Find Out The Biggest Challenges Organisations Face - And The 6 Critical Success Factors For Implementation.

"Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) has been in use for well over twenty years, but its real value has taken some time to emerge widely, particularly for large multi-regional organisations that use it to manage highly complex global supply chains.”

“One of the perceived key benefits of S&OP is to allow companies to align supply and demand in a way that maximises customer service, minimises working capital expenditure and makes sure that manufacturing unit costs are competitive. 
Even today these objectives remain a significant challenge for many organisations."
