As joint leader of the free-to-attend workshop, Oliver Wight Asia Pacific Managing Partner, Mike Reed, will demonstrate the power of Integrated Business Planning (IBP) in planning and managing the entire organisation over a 24-month horizon. The workshop is designed to show senior executives and middle management how to cultivate the right behaviours, design the right processes and choose the right tools, for the pursuit of business excellence.
“S&OP stood firm for three decades as the business process of choice to improve performance, but Integrated Business Planning (Advanced S&OP) has bought with it a far more holistic approach, more robust financial projection and tight integration of all company processes,” explains Reed. “However, many organisations still struggle to achieve the kind of joined-up thinking necessary for optimal service and product delivery. A solution is needed to provide the critical link between top down financial plans and bottom up operational plans, so they are robust and developed to meet the company’s strategic goals.”
The workshop will explain how to find the right balance between people, processes and technology in order to align strategic and tactical plans each month, and allocate critical resource - people, equipment, inventory, materials, time and money - to satisfy customers in the most profitable way.
