Integrated Business Planning (Advanced S&OP)
In this uncertain world it is vital the executive and general management team in your organisation are able to anticipate change early, understand the implications for your business and make timely decisions to ensure you stay ahead of the competition and keep the business on track. This Integrated Business Planning workshop shows how you can be prepared for the future, whatever it holds.
What is this workshop about?
Often referred to as advanced or next-generation S&OP, Integrated Business Planning is increasingly the business management process of choice for organisations all over the world. Integrated Business Planning represents the evolution of S&OP from its production planning roots into the fully integrated business management and supply collaboration process it is today.
This interactive workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the Integrated Business Planning process, what it takes to implement it successfully and the huge benefits it can bring. It shows how to align your planning processes with the business strategy over a 24 to 36-month horizon, with full product portfolio management and financial integration, to ensure the organisation is working to a common agenda and single set of numbers. And it describes how the model can by applied equally effectively to single site organisations as it can to multi-site, multi-national matrix structures. The workshop shows how Integrated Business Planning can be used to identify gaps in business performance far enough ahead for the business to re-optimise in light of the changing circumstances, using scenario modelling to deliver the best result for the business.
Who is it for?
Ultimately everybody in the organisation needs to be engaged with the Integrated Business Planning process, since it is the process that will run the business. But critical to the success of any Integrated Business Planning implementation is the commitment and sponsorship of the organisation’s most senior executive. This workshop is designed for senior executives, plus the general management team, specialists leading the supporting processes of product management, demand management and supply management, and the senior financial executive.
