Brighton, Victoria, Australia, 2013/10/09 - Oliver Wight, established business improvement specialists, will be hosting two workshops in Sydney and Melbourne alongside business solutions provider, Oracle. The events will approach IBP implementation in a new, interesting way.
Leading business improvement specialists, Oliver Wight, are working with integrated business solutions providers, Oracle, to bring a fresh perspective to Integrated Business Planning (IBP). The companies are jointly hosting two interactive workshops at Cliftons Hotel in Melbourne on 29th October and in Sydney on 30th October 2013.
The one-day executive level workshops 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 activities, 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.
Mike Reed, Managing Partner at Oliver Wight Asia Pacific, is a keynote speaker at the free-to-attend workshop in Melbourne. With over 25 years of experience in effectively redesigning and implementing business processes, Reed describes how businesses can overcome the barriers to achieving business excellence:
“The challenge of converting high-level, strategic plans into operational reality is not new territory. However, many organisations still struggle to achieve the kind of joined-up thinking necessary for optimal service and product delivery,” says Reed. “It is vital 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.”
Oliver Wight Asia Pacific Partner, Stuart Harman, presenting at the second event in Sydney, has over 20 years expertise in Integrated Business Planning and Strategy Management:
”With the correct blend of people, process and technology, it is possible to achieve a single end-to-end view of the business. Our aim, through the workshops, is to show how to cultivate the right behaviours, design the right process and choose the right tools to achieve business excellence.”
