WHAT TO EXPECT:
To enable Jaguar Land Rover to meet future sales volumes and customer delivery expectations, in this unprecedented era of global supply chain disruption, our Enterprise needs live, accurate & precise insights derived from our data on which to make decisions in this highly dynamic period.

The focus of the team is to work with all teams to provide a holistic journey both in terms of providing the analytics to help set rules to optimise the plan, make & buy value creation stage but also guide on the reporting technology required to support this.
