A significant number of companies have led the evolution of S&OP from fundamental demand and supply balancing to an integrated strategic deployment and management process.
This evolving process is known as Integrated Business Planning (IBP).Companies that do Integrated Business Planning well are more efficient, more effective, and make more money than those who don't.Oliver Wight is the originator of sales and operations planning (S&OP) and pioneers of Integrated Business Planning. However, unlike S&OP, it brings a truly strategic perspective, integrating diverse processes - in the extended supply chain, product and customer portfolios, customer demand and strategic planning - into one seamless management process.If you have the ambition, it is possible to make improvements that truly transform the performance of your organization and create more fulfilling roles for the people within it.We believe this can only be delivered by your own people.It is probably safe to say we all have lived through a bit of chaos at times, where we feel things are out of control and fires are popping up everywhere.If we think about how this applies to Demand Execution, we see executives getting involved.So, we’ve designed our new workshop to set up business leaders with the insight and knowledge they need to start their journey to business transformation and world-class performance on the right foot.The Oliver Wight Class A Standard has now becomea benchmark for the world’s highest performingbusinesses.So, unlike other consultancy firms, we transfer our knowledge to you; knowledge that comes from nearly 50 years of working with some of the world’s best-known companies.Oliver Wight has a long-standing reputation for innovation and we continually challenge the industry status quo, so you always get the latest in new thinking.
