The two-week academy, to be held in Singapore between 9th and 20th January 2012, is designed to provide an introduction for senior executives and middle managers in Asian-based organisations to the very latest in management thinking.
“Delegates will learn how to plan and manage their organisations over a 24 month horizon, and to align tactical and strategic plans each month, so you can satisfy customers in the most profitable way,” says Oliver Wight partner Paul Ducie, who will be managing the event, along with Mike Reed, also a partner at the business improvement specialist.
In addition to revealing how to transform your planning processes, the Singapore academy will also provide an introduction for organisations on how to achieve business excellence and what is required to reach the prestigious Oliver Wight Class A standard. Courses include:
• Integrated Business Planning (advanced S&OP) in Practice
• Managing Demand
• Supply Planning in Practice
• Product Portfolio & Lifecycle Management
There will also be an exclusive opportunity for delegates to receive free one-to-one advice from Oliver Wight consultants, who will conduct regular ‘doctor surgeries’ during the academy fortnight.
Reed, says: “The financial challenges of the last few of years have shown organisations that business excellence has become a necessity rather than a luxury; it can make the difference between survival and failure. Oliver Wight Class A shouldn’t be viewed as an objective in itself, but rather as a series of direct solutions to specific problems; organisations can achieve business excellence by taking a sequence of small steps, which in themselves will bring immediate and substantial returns. The new academy will give companies practical help on how that can be achieved.”
The academy is open to all organisations in the Asia Pacific region and delegates can attend any or all of the courses. There are discounted rates for delegates booking more than one course, and for organisations, which book multiple delegate places.
Due to the expected level of demand, Oliver Wight is asking delegates to register before 31st October 2011.
