Example – Demand Planning

The Demand Planning Performance ArrowSM is a nifty Excel tool that covers 25 Demand Planning best practices across the dimensions of  Organization, Process, Technology, and Results.  Each best practice has a few questions that depending upon responses, calculates a “% Implemented” value which turns each best practice green, yellow, or red to produce a visual map of strengths and development areas.  The specific questions can also be changed to fit your particular situation if desired.  

Based on how the user responds to the survey in the tool, it outputs the graphical summaries as shown below. (Sample results shown).
