Oliver Wight announces new free-to-attend Integrated Business Planning Seminar
Oliver Wight EAME is holding an Integrated Business Planning (IBP) seminar on 10 November 2011 at Williams F1 Conference Centre in Oxfordshire. The one-day event is designed to provide an introduction to IBP for senior executives and middle managers in manufacturing and service organisations.
The seminar, which will be led by Oliver Wight associates Paul Archer and Dave Manning, is suitable if you are implementing an IBP process for the first time or transitioning to IBP from S&OP. The event will include a presentation from Oliver Wight client, Ian Furlong, Head of Corporate Branch at Humberside Police on the success IBP has brought his organisation, plus an interactive panel discussion. In addition to learning more about IBP and its benefits, delegates will also receive practical advice on implementing IBP within their own organisation.
“With the continued uncertain economic environment, it is more important than ever to have control of your business, and IBP can help you do that,” says Dave Manning. “It integrates business processes and aligns people behind the business plan so it can be executed in a cohesive and effective manner, which means it can help you increase revenues, improve profitability and reduce inventory. In fact Oliver Wight clients report profitability gains of 15 per cent or more as a result of IBP. The leadership team also get a realistic view of where their business is, ensuring early focus on any potential gaps in business performance, so they can predict and respond positively to changing conditions, in plenty of time.”
S&OP was originated by Oliver Wight more than thirty years ago. Today, at the leading edge of management thinking and practice, the Oliver Wight IBP model extends the concepts established by S&OP to all aspects of company planning and execution; from the boardroom to operational levels. It links diverse processes - in the extended supply chain, product and customer portfolios, customer demand and strategic planning - into one seamless management process.
