Why Good Planning is important

Planning is not easy. If it was then there would be far fewer warehouses, no shortages to customers and no business failure. A properly functioning planning department should sit as the hub of the business through which all the information and operational decisions in the company flows. It is cricital that they get those decisions right.

Better Planners make better plans.
