  • (1888PressRelease) December 08, 2014 - Business improvement specialists, Oliver Wight, are pleased to announce their exclusive conference, Integrated Business Planning for High Performance Organisations, the first ever Integrated Business Planning (IBP) conference in the Asia Pacific region. Leading organisations will meet to share their experiences in implementing Integrated Business Planning (IBP) at the Crown Conference Centre, Melbourne, on 24th-25th February 2015.

    This event is an outstanding educational opportunity for industry's top executives to learn how to take their IBP process to the next level. An unrivalled line up of exceptional speakers, including Amanda Banfield, Managing Director at Mondelēz Australia and New Zealand, Graham Dugdale, Executive Director - Commercial at Simplot Australia and Ron Ireland, Principal at Oliver Wight Americas, the architect of Walmart's CPFR forecasting and replenishment process. Each speaker will share their experiences, lessons they've learnt and the success they've had.

    "Today, Integrated Business Planning sits at the heart of many organisations as the management process that runs the entire business," says Mike Reed, Oliver Wight Asia Pacific Managing Director. "IBP allows companies to allocate resources to the most productive activities and react swiftly to ever-changing market conditions, to meet customer demand in the most efficient and profitable way."

    On day two of the conference, delegates will have the opportunity to get up to speed with the latest thought leadership on different aspects of IBP, by attending one or more of the three unique Oliver Wight workshops, in addition to networking with other delegates.

    "IBP is becoming a key element in the retail sector by changing the scope of supplier collaboration," explains Ron Ireland who will lead a workshop on 'Collaboration and IBP'. "Successful IBP implementation is very much dependent on people and behaviours, thus, education has a vital role to play. Before people can apply best practice they need to understand what it is and the key lies in workshops, ongoing coaching and cascade education."
