LinkedIn +

John Saxby, UK supply chain director for Danone Waters, will be revealing how the dairy food and water producer achieved global supply chain change at Customer Driven Supply Chain 2010.

He will analyse how supply chain change was implemented across the organisation with a top-down approach to integrate business and operations planning in a process called GPS.

Saxby has been instrumental in 22 implementations around the world and is keen to point out that theory is fine, but engaging the different functions of the business is key to a truly integrated business planning approach.
