10 Key Steps to Effective HR Succession Planning


Two forces are driving organizations to consider succession planning as a component of overall strategy: the aging workforce and a shortfall in labor skills. Both factors will only become more pressing as time goes on. That’s why succession planning requires a long-term strategic commitment rather than a short-term (and sometimes panic-driven) effort to fill vacancies as they occur.

Advanced Planning Optimization and LeadTime Technology


While both the LeadTime Technology (LLT) and the advanced planning optimization (APO) modules from SAP are supply chain optimization tools, the scope of each is very different. APO optimizes the global supply chain based on costs and heuristics, while LLT looks at production resources and bases optimization on economic profit. Compare the differences between these two tools and see why LLT provides a distinct advantage.
