Integrated Business Planning Results in Uncertain Times

All industries and companies are faced with uncertainty - the future is not known. Integrated Business Planning (IBP) represents a cross functional planning methodology that manages and guides business planning and execution in good times and bad. It is led by senior management and links company strategy to plans and execution of those plans. In this time of rapid change, this workshop will provide an overview of how IBP is being applied today and then give multiple examples of practical application from a variety of industries. Scenario planning, the use of assumptions to shape plans will be emphasized with practical examples of how this is being applied to prepare for a post COVID-19 environment.

This course will be most relevant to senior level leaders of companies from any industry. Active practitioners of IBP typically have at least 10 years of experience. No prerequisites required.
