Mentoring & Coaching

Once the training is complete what happens next? We can provide ongoing coaching and mentoring for your planning team. Think of it as having an experienced planning manager on call.

Planning isn’t easy. There is so much to take into account it can often seem overwhelming to experienced planners never mind new or inexperienced ones. But the reality is every problem is just a solution waiting to be found. And there are very few problems that have not been seen before and for whom an entirely new solution needs to be developed. With experience you learn how to quickly overcome challenges and adapt to the new situation. Through mentoring and coaching we can provide that experience and develop it within your team


General Eisenhower once said “No plan survives contact with the enemy”. And he overcame that by empowering those below him to adapt as the situation changed. The same is true in Production Planning and Supply Chain Management (and in most, if not all, areas of business). Just as on the battlefield time is often the greatest enemy and quick decisions need to be made. The challenges of planning and supply chain management in a busy company can sometimes appear daunting for both the new team member and the experienced manager. This is where coaching and mentoring comes in.
