Oliver Wight to host Integrated Business Planning Think Tank with events group, Industry Dynamics

Leading business transformation consultants, Oliver Wight, are hosting an exclusive Think Tank in Dusseldorf, Germany on 24th May 2016.

Online PR News – 13-May-2016 – Gloucestershire, Gloucester – The event will focus on driving corporate growth through the use of Integrated Business Planning.

Moderating the workshop are Oliver Wight Associates and thought-leaders on this topic, Liam Harrington and Debbie Bowen-Heaton who will demonstrate how organisations can overcome current and future challenges to transform their businesses, with the insights needed to ensure the IBP process delivers the value it should.

“IBP is a common sense process for aligning the company plans every month to help businesses allocate resources to satisfy customers in the most profitable way,” explains Harrington. “Companies that implement Integrated Business Planning well are more efficient, more effective and make more money than those who do not,” he continues.

Following on from the success of last year’s Think Tank, the focused session will be conducted under Chatham House rules, providing an open and honest forum where senior executives can network with their peers and share concerns over current and future issues.

Guest speaker Neill Hunt, Head of Corporate Strategy at Element Six, will discuss real life case studies. The group will explore, amongst others, eight key issues: decision making for future growth; commodity pricing; reorganisation; talent development; regulatory restrictions; political uncertainty; currency volatility; and emerging technologies.

The day co-hosted by Industry Dynamics, organisers of the annual Supply Chain and Logistics Summit, will commence with breakfast networking from 8:30am with the closed-door Think Tank session starting at 9:30am. Lunch will be served at 12:30pm in an informal setting to facilitate further networking.

The results of the Think Tank will be released by Oliver Wight at the Supply Chain and Logistics Summit in Barcelona on 21st June 2016.
