Integrated Business Planning

12:05 - 12:40

  • Per Oliver Wight, “Integrated Business Planning (IBP) is a holistic business planning process that extends the principles of S&OP throughout the supply chain, product and customer portfolios, customer demand and strategic planning, to deliver one seamless management process”.  Powerful stuff, indeed.
  • But, not all organizations are created equally.  How do you assess your organizational culture and readiness for change for a successful implementation of Integrated Business Planning?  Do you go for the Big Bang approach of a full implementation?  Or, do you introduce the concepts through a grass roots approach?
  • This session will explore the benefits of Integrated Business Planning and how to create the most impactful implementation process for your organization.  Change management, data and analytics and behaviors are just as critical to an IBP implementation as process and content are.  While focusing on moving your organization from S&OP to IBP, the discussions and lessons learned will provide participants with an approach that is applicable to many organizational transformation opportunities.
