Best Practices in Integrated Business Planning
As Integrated Business Planning (IBP) continues to evolve, the significant value this process provides is in driving organizational, business process and management information integration across the entire enterprise. IBP is rapidly becoming the preferred leadership framework that not only provides the latest views and understanding of core business process performance and likely financial outcomes, but also a highly effective process to drive strategy alignment and deployment. In addition, the Management Business Review process step provides an effective forum for cross functional alignment on overall business assumptions including those related to the likely impact of portfolio management plans. This presentation will deliver an overview of IBP best practices and will also provide a focus on the positive impact brought by providing more effective planning of Product Lifecycle and Portfolio Management strategies.

Reduce Costs and Manage Risk Using Inventory and Network Design Optimization
Today’s increasingly volatile and global markets lead to variations in demand, prices, raw material, processing, and transportation costs, requiring companies to design agility and risk-resilience into their supply chain. By designing supply chain networks that place facilities and inventory at the optimal location, adopting optimal postponement strategies, supply chains can become both more responsive, and exhibit less risk. In this session learn how Value Chain Planning brings supply chain design and visibility together to optimally addresses these challenges and enable strategic planning processes for improved financial performance.
