Global Organisations are increasingly transitioning to common operating systems, technologies and platforms. Whereas in the past, global teams and divisions may have operated as distinct entities, the democratisation of data and computing power means that new technologies are enabling companies to centralise operations in order to gain a singular view over sales, finance, marketing and supply chain functions.
Often, this will mean a total reimagination of planning processes in order to incorporate new data sources, standardise information and to make this information accessible around the world in insightful and actionable formats.
IBP represents a step away from S&OP in that Integrated Business Planners set out to define and align common business objectives in order to identify a clear business strategy. IBP is executed at a higher level and as such informs the direction and purpose behind business decisions.
Integrated business planning is breaking down business silos and driving efficiencies throughout supply chain processes by removing blockages and building agility into processes by allowing common access to information and enhanced decision making.
Join this panel discussion to learn how global organisations are beginning the journey to implement IBP, understanding the challenges that need to be overcome in order to do so and the massive opportunities to be capitalised on once achieved.
