Oliver Wight EAME and Oracle will host a free, executive level workshop in London on 27 November 2013 to present ways in which Integrated Business Planning can result in significant benefits to the bottom line.
Press Release November 2013 Unlock full financial potential of IBP with Oliver Wight and Oracle’s Interactive Workshop Leading business improvement specialists, Oliver Wight EAME, are working with Oracle to present the many benefits of Integrated Business Planning (IBP). The companies are jointly hosting an interactive workshop in the Knightsbridge Suite at the Oracle Offices in London on 27th November 2013. The one-day executive level workshop will demonstrate the ways in which Integrated Business Planning (Advanced Sales and Operation Planning, S&OP) can give customers absolute control over all demand, product and supply chain processes, unlocking full financial potential and resulting in substantial benefits to the bottom line. The day includes an overview of IBP, a tutorial on enabling technology and inspiring examples of IBP in practice. Oliver Wight partner Jerry Shanahan will be presenting at the workshop. Shanahan has held a number of senior positions in both the electronics and medical device industries previously; he will draw upon a wealth of experience in leading change initiatives in multi-national corporations based in Europe and the US. “It is important to find a solution that provides the critical link between top-down financial plans and bottom-up operational plans, so they are robust and developed to meet the needs of the strategic goals.” Jerry Shanahan explains. “Companies that are successfully implementing Integrated Business Planning now have an effective process in place for aligning and realigning their strategic, business and operational objectives and core processes across all functions in their organisations. This results in a positive financial impact.” The Oliver Wight and Oracle workshop provides a valuable opportunity to learn more about Integrated Business Planning and how this highly effective process can be used to reach business excellence. The event begins at 9.00 am and will conclude at 4.00 pm. Please note that similar past events have all been oversubscribed, so if you would like to join us, don’t delay.

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.
