Why You Should Attend

14th Annual Advancing S&OP to Integrated Business Planning

This marcus evans conference is a unique opportunity to discuss how to keep making the right business case for S&OP, and achieve financial and commercial engagement. In order to achieve a resiliently effective S&OP process that creates value, you need to go outside the planning and production organisation. By attending this marcus evens event, you will be able to discuss how to embed financial forecasting into S&OP, how to deal with increased volatility and complexity, and how to turn IBP into an effective strategy tool. You will participate in interactive discussions on how to bring information from your S&OP process down into your day-to-day activities for execution, while exploring new approaches and new planning methods. You will have the opportunity to brainstorm with your peers at which level S&OP is the most effective (global, regional or local level), as well as how to use IBP as a filter for better decision-making, in a data-driven digital world.
