LONDON, February 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Demand planning in turbulent market conditions is challenging, doing it while other people are throwing different figures at you is even worse, and getting the forecast 100% correct is impossible - so how can we ensure our figures are as close to the mark as possible; no matter what the scenario?
This year, Pharma IQ launches the Global Strategic Pharmaceutical Demand Planning forum, where leading experts from some of the world's top pharmaceutical companies will be sharing their top tips and best practices for making sure they get it right. http://www.pharmademandplanning.com
The programme includes world-leading experts such as the Vice President, ERP Program Management, of the Ferring International Centre, the Senior Director, Strategic Processes and Technology at UCB Pharma, a representative from Roche Pharma Global Delivery's Global Supply Chain, Finance and HR dept. and the Head of Supply Chain Management, Animal Health, from Boehringer-Ingelheim.
Also scheduled to speak is Teva's Head of Demand Planning, Jeremy Josman, who will offer his expertise and practical tips on Managing the Complexities of Demand Planning on a Global Scale. In this session Jeremy will explore the range and diversity of forecasts needed, how you can establish prioritisation strategies and the best ways to develop effective inventory strategies.
Jeremy is responsible for setting and implementing Teva's demand planning and forecasting strategy, processes and performance metrics worldwide. He has implemented supply chain planning processes and systems in diverse and decentralized corporations.
Arran Oakes, Global Strategic Pharmaceutical Demand Planning Event Director, says "We're really excited to hear Jeremy's insights at the event - the situation with the generic companies is really unique as not only do they face the challenges of entering emerging markets but they have such an impact on the demand planning of other pharmaceutical companies as well. On top of that, Jeremy is a real expert in his field - we're all looking forward to hearing what he has to say!"
