Webinar: Don’t fall for fake news – A buyer’s guide to IBP
28 March 2018
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 are excited about the potential of IBP or just starting to explore the possibilities, this webinar will provide guidelines to help you make sure you set the ambition high enough and know what to ask for. We will be discussing what the key characteristics of true IBP looks like, so you can assess if your own process is capable of delivering the full value.
