09:45: Transitioning from S&OP to IBP and the Non-Negotiables Needed to Make It Happen
Les Brokes, CEO Oliver Wight EAME LLP

Why be good when you can be great? With growing market volatility, businesses must ensure that their processes are able to assist them in creating enhanced predictability, highlighting gaps and most importantly, closing them. Join Les Brookes, CEO of Oliver Wight EAME, the creators of S&OP, as he discusses why businesses that have not moved from Sales and Operations Planning to Integrated Business Planning models are missing out on the business-changing benefits of a dynamic and strategic management process designed to monitor risk and help businesses successfully navigate uncertainty.

See how QAD DynaSys Demand & Supply Chain Planning (DSCP) supports the planning process across the global end to end supply chain and provides visibility & insight to the organisations that are deploying it.
