CPFR 2.0 – Featuring Mike Doherty – Founding Partner, Demand Clarity & Darryl Landvater – Principal, Oliver Wight Americas


Join Jorge Risquez for a group and series that welcomes visionary leaders who are leveraging cutting-edge technologies to get closer to consumers through collaborative planning, forecasting, and replenishment.

Jorge’s guest is Mike Doherty, founding partner of Demand Clarity and Darryl Landvater, principal at Oliver Wight Americas, for a conversation about the concept of Flowcasting, and how it makes consumer demand at the retail store the focal point for the planning of inventory and replenishment throughout the retail supply chain.
