Lisa Anderson’s New Book on SIOP: Key to Supply Chain Success

Sales, Inventory, Operations, Planning is Key to Supply Chain Success 

Manufacturing and Supply Chain Expert Lisa Anderson, MBA, CSCP, CLTD, known as the Strongest Link in Your Supply Chain® and President of LMA Consulting Group Inc., has published: SIOP (Sales Inventory Operations Planning): Creating Predictable Revenue and EBITDA Growth. LMA Consulting Group works with manufacturers and distributors on strategy and end-to-end supply chain transformation to maximize the customer experience and enable profitable, scalable, dramatic business growth.

“Supply Chains continue to be the cornerstone to success in the decades to come. And while the reasons are different than during the height of the pandemic, supply chains continue to be challenged with new obstacles occurring every day. As I look at the chaos over the last few years and its negative impact on service, growth and profitability, I see the need for a proven process,” says Anderson. “The SIOP (Sales Inventory Operations Planning) also known as S&OP, is the answer. It shines a light on what is needed, engages all departments across the organization and proactively aligns demand with supply to enable growth and profitability.”

The SIOP process engages a proven methodology of integrating data, demand, supply, and communication to affect an exceptional customer experience that drives growth. “The beauty of the SIOP process is that it is organic. Once a company has employed the process, it continues to evolve with significant results. We have customers who have optimized service levels by improving forecasts, increased cash flow by reducing inventory levels while improving service, and improved the visibility of data for a more consistent and level-loaded production schedule leading to better efficiencies, reduced material costs, and improved productivity. It can be done, and it is being done with considerable success. And the best part is, once implemented, it will fuel transformative strategies for growth and improved margins,” she said.

Ms. Anderson and co-author Diane Garcia developed: SIOP (Sales Inventory Operations Planning): Creating Predictable Revenue and EBITDA Growth to help organizations understand the value of a proven process.  The book is complimentary on the LMA Website at: It can also be found on Amazon digitally and on-demand print at:  SIOP at and on iTunes: Apple iTunes SIOP BookMs. Anderson also provides supply chain updates through Supply Chain Chats, a series of short videos that address current topics, issues and challenges related to supply chains.
