Why You Should Attend

10th Advancing Sales & Operational Planning to Integrated Business Planning

Integrated Business Planning is a very sophisticated process (the most mature level of S&OP) which incorporates budgeting and financial business planning into the classical supply chain processes (demand and supply). However, unlike S&OP, IBP brings a strategic perspective, integrating diverse processes - in the extended supply chain, product and customer portfolios, customer demand and strategic planning - into one seamless management process.

This exclusive marcus evans conference will allow the industry professionals to learn about S&OP and its elevation to integrated business planning, mature S&OP organisations, forecasting and planning sales, supply and demand, improving revenue through S&OP, behavioural supply chain management, the impact of technology on S&OP/IBP and successfully running business units using S&OP.
