Disruption to your business doesn’t have to spell disaster. Whether it’s minor supply chain hiccups, competitor activity, or global events, many organisations can turn these situations to their advantage and even find new ways to disrupt the markets in which they operate.
Here are four approaches that can help you go from the disrupted to the disruptor:
How can Integrated Business Planning help my organisation become an industry disruptor?
By following a structured, Integrated Business Planning (IBP) process across your business you can put in place robust processes supported by embedded technologies that let you anticipate and mitigate the potentially damaging impacts of disruptive events. Meanwhile, your teams are empowered with the insights required to make rapid, informed decisions that can help you proactively create new opportunities and become a successful market disruptor yourself.
IBP isn’t just for large, complex organisations. Using IBP as the way to run your business can help deliver insights that enable smaller companies to outstrip their larger, less agile rivals. Sophisticated IBP technology was once only available for larger enterprises, but now modern solutions are accessible to businesses of every size, providing game-changing insights to help them detect and act on new opportunities.
I’m often asked, “What’s the first step to getting started with Integrated Business Planning?”
My answer: Accepting that you can challenge the status quo.
You’ve got to want to change and make things better for yourself, the people around you, and your business. If you’re happy with what you’ve got then you’re never going to change the way you work. Having the drive and desire to be great - not just good - is key.
