Demand Driven Leader (DDL)

The Demand Driven Leader was created by the Demand Driven Institute (DDI). The 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 (DDOM).

The formal planning and execution method Demand Driven MRP (DDMRP) is the basis and designed to correct the inadequacies and inappropriate rules of conventional Material Requirements Planning (MRP) given today’s more volatile, complex and service oriented supply and manufacturing scenarios. 


The program spans Planning, Operations, Distribution and Finance:

  • Introduction to DDMRP
  • Conventional Challenges for Flow
  • Overview of Designing and Operating for Flow
  • Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP)
  • Demand Driven Scheduling and Shop Floor Execution
  • Tactical Smart Metrics for Operations
  • Demand Driven operating Model (DDOM)
  • Demand Driven Sales and Operations Planning (DDS&OP)
  • Demand Driven Adaptive System (DDAS) Development Path

Target Group

The Demand Driven Leader (DDL) Program is addressed to senior and mid-level operations and supply chain managers. The course is interesting for the following occupational groups: Continuous improvement specialists, supply chain process owner, supply chain managers, and consultants.


The course is constructed in a 2 day workshop format. Language: English.
