Day 2: Industrial Manufacturing - 09:00 - 09:35 - Advancing S&OP in an Industrial Environment

Dawn Dent and Paul Archer

This interactive presentation will seek to highlight the key challenges and benefits associated to advancing the value of S&OP in an Industrial environment. Many companies struggle to get beyond the basic value of simple Supply and Demand balancing. During this session we will talk through the critical break-through improvement steps, sharing the benefit of multiple implementation experiences and setting direction and focus for your improvement Journey.


Day 3: F&B and Chemical - 12:00 - 12:35 - Don't fall for fake news - a business leaders guide to IBP

Debbie Bowen-Heaton

All over the world we are seeing a worrying trend: people being pitched Integrated Business Planning (IBP) but delivered traditional Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP). 

In conference venues and meeting rooms, Integrated Business Planning is being casually misused in seminars and keynote speeches, when the discussion is in an exclusively supply chain context.  The intent here is not to play down this critical element of the business – in fact effective Supply Chain planning is probably more important than it has ever been.

But Integrated Business Planning is more than a supply chain process.  It has a much broader reach.  IBP doesn’t just facilitate process improvement, it helps create transformation.  By failing to fully recognise IBP’s potential, organisations often set the ambition too low and limit “success” to e.g. a reduction in inventory; process improvement and cost efficiency.  Sustainable profitable business growth should be the primary goal; this is the true purpose of IBP.   

If you’re interested in understanding the true benefits that can be derived from IBP, then come and listen to the Oliver Wight experts in the principles of Integrated Business Planning.

This session is interactive with live polling; therefore, we ask participants to bring along their smartphones and they will be directed to a URL before the session begins.
