It is a common problem in many companies: business functions that are not aligned. People in different departments have different incentives, agendas and mental models. The result: sub-optimal results, missed business targets and a lot of wasted energy.
Recognise this? The good news is that Integrated Business Planning can help by realising cross-functional alignment. By enabling decisions that are optimal for the company as a whole, not just for one department. Besides, a well-defined IBP process can be the bridge between the company’s strategy and the tactical and operational decisions.
Maybe you are already running S&OP and want to improve it, or maybe you want to make the next step towards IBP. But where to start? How to make it a joint effort with your colleagues, leading to concrete results?
Involvation now offers the opportunity to strengthen you knowledge and get inspired by joining one of the “IBP Boost Camps”. A workshop consists of case studies and IBP theory that you will immediately bring into practice in the business simulation “The Fresh Connection”. This ensures a very steep learning curve.
Are you actively involved in S&OP/IBP and willing to drive the next step? And are you working in sales, finance, procurement, operations or supply chain? Then register for this high energy training and experience the power of Integrated Business Planning! For more information please contact Hans van der Drift.
