The Demand Driven Leader (DDL) program equips senior and mid-level operations and supply chain managers with the ability to design, implement and sustain a Demand Driven Operating Model including parameter settings through Demand Driven S&OP (DDS&OP). Designed by the leading authorities on Demand Driven methods at the Demand Driven Institute, the Demand Driven Leader program is comprised of 7 modules of in-depth Demand Driven education. The DDL Program is THE official preparatory course for the ISCEA’s Certified Demand Driven Leader (CDDL) Certification test.
Upon completion, participations will be able to:
A Demand Driven Operating Model is a supply order generation, operational scheduling and execution model utilizing actual demand in combination with strategic decoupling and control points and stock, time and capacity buffers in order to create a predictable and agile system that promotes and protects the flow of relevant information and materials within the tactical relevant operational range (hourly, daily and weekly). A Demand Driven Operating Model’s key parameters are set through the Demand Driven Sales and Operations Planning process to meet the stated business and market objectives while minimizing working capital and expedite related expenses.
The program is two days and spans Planning, Operations, Distribution and Finance.
The DDL Program is comprised of 7 modules delivered over 2 days.
The program is taught in English (other languages are available on request) by Christoph Lenhartz, DDI Master Instructor (unless otherwise indicated).
This program will enable today’s leaders and key personnel in organizations with supply chain or customer-oriented activities to improve the cooperation between management team members. Sales, finance and operational functions need to closely work together to create an integrated, aligned and synergistic systems so that material, information, and money can flow without any inhibition.
Taking full advantage of the DDMRP methodology throughout the organization requires full support from management including finance and sales. Therefore we highly recommend that senior managers attend this training or one of our other Demand Driven training options. Experience (since 2012) shows that early management involvement is a key driver for successful implementations of DDMRP.
