A progressive approach to Integrated Business Planning

We have found that the most successful IBP initiatives have been progressive, starting with clear short-term goals and a shared belief in its value amongst senior management and the people who are instrumental to making it happen.

Expect the first tangible business benefits to take 3 to 6 months to materialise, a functioning executive level S&OP process to be in place in 9 to 12 months and a fully integrated IBP with S&OP and integrated sales, production and inventory execution process to take 2 years.
