Oliver Wight Integrated Business Planning for high performance businesses

Business improvement firm Oliver Wight has published a new guide to Integrated Business Planning, its blueprint for outstanding business performances and long-term commercial gains.

“Integrated Business Planning provides the perfect platform for innovation, and it creates opportunities for organisations to drive sales up and costs down,” explains Oliver Wight EAME partner, Liam Harrington. “It gives the senior executive team an accurate and holistic view of the entire business over a 24 to 36 month horizon, which makes it a real asset in the current business environment.”

As the originators of Integrated Business Planning, Oliver Wight’s long-term modus operandi has been to help businesses deliver ‘best-in-class’ service, maximise efficiency and minimise costs. This new brochure, ‘Integrated Business Planning for High Performance Businesses’, gives companies an invaluable introduction to the Integrated Business Planning process; how it works and the benefits it can bring, from improved decision-making and increased teamwork to ‘oiling the wheels’ for more effective relationships with suppliers, customers and consumers.

Integrated Business Planning allows organisations to allocate resources to the most productive activities and react swiftly to ever-changing market conditions, so they can meet customer demand in the most efficient and profitable way.

But Harrington stresses that for Integrated Business Planning to transform the performance of a business, it is vital it is to create the right culture within the organisation: “We look at the business from top to bottom to see how we can help foster a company-wide culture of teamwork and cooperation towards a common set of goals,” he says.

Oliver Wight has implemented Integrated Business Planning for some of the world’s best-known companies, across a wide range of industries. The mantra is to ‘plan for whatever lies ahead’, helping companies to stay on course whatever the economic weather.
