It is vital that the executive and management teams in your business are able to anticipate change early, understand key implications and make timely decisions to ensure you manage the business in both normal and in extraordinary circumstances whilst staying ahead of the competition. In today’s world we are being tested in ways that are unprecedented. An effective process that enables business leaders to navigate these challenges and plan their way beyond them is business critical. Integrated Business Planning is that process. But for Integrated Business Planning to drive real success in your business the people involved need a clear-eyed view of what it really is and what it takes to make it work. IBP: An Executive Guide has been designed for leaders and for those who engage with them. Our virtual workshop is your opportunity to explore what IBP can do for your business and deepen your understanding of the process, ensuring you are prepared for the future, whatever it holds.
