Integrated Business Planning - Complimentary Seminar
Integrated Business Planning (or Advanced Sales and Operations Planning) is a critical business model that should be adopted at this time, or improved if it does not work so well. This complimentary seminar will share with you the realities of making it work brilliantly.
All companies are living through extraordinary times within a constantly changing global environment. Our clients are selling globally, buying globally and trying to satisfy global shareholders with even more challenging targets. Annual budgets are less relevant. Integrated Business Planning is that formal process that allows you to react to change in a formal way on a daily/weekly/monthly basis to meet your business objectives without firefighting and panics. It breaks down the silos between functions. The familiar mantra is one set of numbers, based on one version of the truth, working as one team. Get rid of excel spreadsheets as a way of managing the business.
Rupert Tubbs, Head of Sales and Operations Planning at Weetabix and Richard Dyson Head of IBP at Hallmark Cards will share with you their experiences on using SOP/IBP, within highly challenging market conditions, with clients forever fighting for market share. Both companies have reinvigorated their SOP/IBP process in the last 2/3 years, and they will tell their fascinating stories about using IBP/SOP to run the business. They will be real and pragmatic.
We will give you a 120 day programme to implement it or improve it, and provide you a way of assessing how good your process is. We will also show you why Leadership is a key prerequisite. It is not just about Planning; it depends on Leadership to make it work.
