Become Demand Driven Supply Chain Management

Traditional MRP equations aren’t wrong, but they don’t fit anymoreTransform your inventory management processes to gain the agility needed for today’s fast-paced reality.

The fact is the supply chain of the past causes too much burnout and stress due to its reactionary nature. And it doesn’t have to be done in those old ways anymore. Demand Driven dynamically adapts based on changes in your business, allowing you to prevent your next emergency, not just react when it’s too late.

We need to embrace solutions that resolve the disconnect between our plan and the reality we find.

We need to stop fixing the duct tape.


These Demand Driven strategies give you greater business visibility and enable you to purposefully improve customer service and employee satisfaction while increasing company return on investment.

"John is a great instructor with a solid business background so he does a great job connecting the material with real life scenarios. I have taken the Demand Driven Planner Professional with him and passed the test in my first try (not an easy test at all!! one of the most difficult I've taken and I have a degree in Supply Chain). John was there to break down content even after the course ended and made the process clear and efficient to become certified. As I continued my Demand Driven education online for the Demand Driven Leader Certification, I was able to tap John for guidance and clarity when the course material was not sufficient to expand on concepts. John is a fantastic resource and I highly recommend him to anyone early on their Demand Driven Journey!"
