Delivered in an informal interview with Potjer and Ezzeddine, attendees will hear first-hand how IBP helped to reboot the multi-billion-dollar organisation and cement Danone’s position as the world’s leading manufacturer of fresh dairy and plant-based products. With a focus on the challenges facing FMCG market when implementing IBP, the webinar will explain why the right leadership is key to successful integration of the process.
“IBP has been proven to deliver cultural transformation in struggling organisations, inspiring continuous improvement and delivering sustainable results,” says Bowen-Heaton, “However, the success of the implementation of IBP rests directly with the leadership. There needs to be 100% buy-in from the top, with management supplying the vision, setting the priorities and providing the resources to support the organisation on its path to reinvention.”
The webinar will also specifically explore the role of the Integrated Business Planning Leader, and how their effectiveness is critical to success, as well as focusing on the key characteristics, skills and calibre of candidate organisations need, to get the most out of their IBP process.
