Why You Should Attend

12th Annual Advancing S&OP to Integrated Business Planning

This exclusive marcus evans conference will help companies to achieve a transition from S&OP to IBP by looking closely at blockers of change, incorporation of financial analysis and cross-functional alignment. We will discuss how to succeed in cross-functional integration, achieve more accurate demand forecasting and planning by integrating customers and suppliers into a process as well as to improve the quality of data management in a Supply Chain.

Pursuing the most mature stage of S&OP Integrated Business Planning, companies are going through organizational and transformational changes. A transition period presents a number of challenges both from supply chain and business perspectives. It is crucial to set own vision/definition and clear path of moving from S&OP to IBP in order to ensure one company agenda with one set of priorities.

Key Topics

  • Improve change management and overcome blockers of change
  • Increase a cross functional engagement and minimize a conflict of interests
  • Achieve the transition from S&OP to IBP and make sure that processes are aligned to get the single set of numbers
  • Extend S&OP across the whole supply chain value
  • Identify correct level of data and make quick planning decisions
