The Christmas season and winter months can evoke warm memories of childhood: ice skating, building snowmen, and drinking hot chocolate by the fire. If you were an entrepreneurial youth, perhaps you even ran your own hot chocolate stand. Now just imagine how successful that endeavor would have been if you knew then about the concept of sales and operations (S&OP) planning.

So, how could S&OP transform the operations of the humble hot chocolate stand? The folks at E2open have been thinking about the basics of S&OP and with the holidays coming up, we wanted to share our tips with a bit of holiday flair. In this new infographic, some tasty tidbits about the value and purpose of S&OP are shared. The graph uses a festive themed illustration around a hot chocolate stand to showcase how the whole process works.
