The 2020 Foresight Practitioner Conference
Topic: Integrated Business Planning and Forecasting: Innovations to Drive Profitable Growth
Dates: December 2, 2020
Despite the hype, what we’ve been calling Integrated Business Planning (IBP) (also known as Advanced Sales and Operations Planning) is not delivering the value that global organizations need and expect. While it continues to fortify supply and demand balancing, IBP falls short of supporting profitable growth and operational excellence. What IBP should be is a process for aligning strategic, financial, operational, and commercial outcomes while enabling tradeoff decisions horizontally across functions, business units, and legal entities. This is all the more true in complex, global organizations.
Join us for this unique, online conference as industry experts and thought leaders examine why truly integrated processes are difficult to achieve and what organizations can do to overcome the impediments.
Len Tashman (Foresight Editor) and Dean Sorensen (Foresight Editor, Integrated Business Planning) will host this dynamic and important conference.
Why is IBP less effective in global manufacturers than smaller and less complex organizations?
The Foresight Practitioner Conference will examine this and other fundamental challenges for integrated business planning.
