Oliver Wight and JDA to run joint IBP and S&OP Workshop in Singapore
Business improvement specialists, Oliver Wight, will be joining supply chain software
providers, JDA, on Friday 11 January 2013, to present the benefits of Integrated
Business Planning and Sales & Operations Planning in successful business

The free workshop, which takes place at the Marina Mandarin Singapore 8.30am-1.30pm, is
designed to provide senior executives and middle management an insight into managing a
business through Integrated Business Planning. Presentations from both Oliver Wight, the
originators of sales and operations planning (S&OP) and IBP, and supply chain software
specialists JDA, will explicate the intricate relationship between good processes and choosing
the right tools.

Oliver Wight Partner, Mike Reed, who will be co-presenting the workshop, has over 25-years
helping businesses across multinational firms to implement Integrated Business Planning
processes for business success. “2013 will be a year for organisations to really get to grips
with the processes that run their businesses,” explains Reed. “As markets become
increasingly segmented and customers ever more demanding, Integrated Business Planning
will become even more vital in providing the visibility to respond effectively to changing
market conditions.”

JDA has been a strategic partner of Oliver Wight since 2008, and its software incorporates
Oliver Wight’s market-leading methodology. “Successful IBP requires a balance between
people, processes and technology,” says Reed. “This interactive workshop will not only
provide an essential overview of how this can be achieved, but also reveal some of the
frustrations and advantages that different tools and techniques produce, enabling attendees
to compare and contrast overall results.”

About Oliver Wight

Oliver Wight has a 40 year track record of delivering business improvement to some of the world’s best-
known organisations. With a team of professionals offering a wealth of experience, Oliver Wight is the
largest consultancy of its type, with offices throughout Europe, South Africa, North and South America,
and the Asia Pacific region. We believe that sustainable business improvement can’t be delivered by
external consultants but only by our clients’ own people, so unlike other consultancy firms, we transfer
our knowledge to them, helping deliver performance levels and financial results that last.

Integrated Business Planning
At the leading edge of management thinking and practice, our Integrated Business Planning (IBP) model
lies at the heart of our clients’ journey to outstanding business performance. Oliver Wight are the
originators of sales and operations planning (S&OP) and IBP can most simply be described as
advanced S&OP. However, unlike S&OP, IBP 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.

Supply Chain Optimisation
In an uncertain business climate, volatile demand and unpredictability can expose weaknesses in supply
chain performance. Supply Chain Optimisation helps companies improve sub-standard systems and
processes, delivering a significant return to the bottom line.

Meeting the Class A Standard
The Oliver Wight Class A Checklist is the longest standing and most successful business assessment
tool. The latest, Sixth Edition, raises the bar, and sets ever more demanding standards for companies
on their journey to business excellence and the Oliver Wight Class A standard.
