Demand Driven Institute

The Demand Driven Institute (DDI) is dedicated to proliferating consistent demand driven methods approaches through education, training and certification. 

Becoming Demand Driven requires a fundamental shift from the centrality of supply and cost based operational methods (commonly referred to as “push and promote”) to a centrality of actual demand and flow based methods (commonly referred to as “position, protect and pull”).  The term “actual demand” is extremely important in distinguishing it from a re-branded and somehow superior forecasting approach.  

The Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise (DDAE) Model now spans the operational, tactical and strategic ranges of an organization allowing it to continuously and successfully adapt to the complex and volatile supply chains we see today.  It combines the fundamental principles of flow management with the emerging new science of complex adaptive systems (CAS).  It is the way that successful businesses will work in the 21st Century.The  Demand Driven Institute has a global presence through its partnership with the International Supply Chain Education Alliance (ISCEA) and its global network of affiliates. DDI's Certified Demand Driven Planner (CDDP) Program is quickly becoming the world standard for the emerging demand driven methodology in planning, scheduling and execution. The Demand Driven Institute (DDI) was founded in 2011 by Carol Ptak and Chad Smith, co-authors of Orlicky's Material Requirements Planning, Third Revised Edition.
ASCI is the Australasain affiliate of the Demand Driven Institute, offers training for those wishing to obtain the accreditation: Certified Demand Driven Planner.  All training is provided by DDI endorsed facilitators.
