Oliver Wight to host free Integrated Business Planning Webinar

Oliver Wight EAME is hosting a webinar entitled 'Business Performance, it's your responsibility' on the 6th November at 2.00pm GMT. The event is designed to equip senior executives with invaluable knowledge to optimise their processes, tools and culture, to improve business performance.

The live one-hour webinar presented by Oliver Wight partners, Liam Harrington and Andy Walker, will clearly demonstrate how Integrated Business Planning  (IBP) allows a business to plan for success and then align the entire organisation to deliver it.

"Businesses often know they are declining in performance but choose not to accept or acknowledge it until they are in considerable difficulties. However, IBP transforms this culture by initiating planning across a rolling horizon of 24 months or more" explains Liam Harrington.

Integrated Business Planning can most simply be described as advanced or next generation, S&OP, but unlike S&OP, IBP brings with a truly strategic perspective, and integration is what distinguishes it from its predecessor

The expert speakers from Oliver Wight will share their insights on how Integrated Business Planning can enable strategy execution excellence and show you powerful steps you can take to help your long-term planning issues.

The webinar will challenge the premise that S&OP should merely be a supply chain process, limited to balancing supply and demand, before highlighting the truly integrated nature of IBP. IBP positions itself at the very heart of an organisation, allowing senior management to plan and manage the entire business, determining its future success through timely decision-making.
