  • Integrated business planning

    By deploying a single model across the enterprise and leveraging the organization’s information assets, corporate executives, business unit heads and planning managers use IBP to evaluate plans and activities based on the true economic impact of each consideration.

    Re: Integrated business planning

    Integrated business planning (IBP) refers to the technologies, applications and processes of connecting the planning function across the enterprise to improve organizational alignment and financial performance. IBP accurately represents a holistic model of the company[citation needed] in order to link strategic planning and operational planning with financial planning.

      Re: Integrated business planning

      Too many companies focus on budgeting, not planning, and their budgeting process itself is a cumbersome, once-a-year effort. Of course, companies already do a lot of planning outside of the budgeting process. Manufacturing creates production schedules, sales organizations produce pipeline forecasts based on the plans generated by individual sales managers and those running the supply chain establish sales and operations plans. However, these are rarely integrated in any formal way and are out of synch almost immediately. (Revenue projections set in last fall’s budget season are wildly out of date by now, even as sales forecasts have been updated a couple of times.) Our research has shown this lack of coordination often results in “the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing” (e.g., stock-outs occurring because manufacturing doesn’t know what promotions marketing has scheduled).

      Companies need to implement “integrated business planning,” a way for them to enable individual business units to engage in planning activities in ways that inform (and are informed by) the plans of other parts of the business. To do this they need to reduce or eliminate standalone spreadsheets from their corporate planning processes and replace them with dedicated systems that centralize collection of planning data and manage the planning processes themselves.

          IBP is linking Operational Plans to Financial Plans. This linkage enables companies to understand how financial budgets and assumptions can impact operational plans and execution. One of the fundamental requirements for linking financial and operational plans is the ability to translate between units and revenues/margins.

              Hello,
              Yes I completely agree with you post. Integrated Business Planning is something that will help in making your business plan better and more strong. So one needs to sit down and understand what is more important and whats not.
              It is also very important to understand that nothing works without planning.

                    S&OP is an integrated business management process that enable companies to leverage their investments in SAP and Oracle to create and collaborate on sales and operations plans. Integrated Business Planning links the financial planning process with the S&OP process. This linkage enables companies to understand how financial budgets and assumptions can impact operational plans and execution.

This linkage endows businesses to understand how financial allowances and assumptions can influence operational designs and execution. One of the basic requirements for linking economic and operational plans is the proficiency to translate between flats and revenues/margins.

                            The immediate response to surviving an economic downturn involves battening down the hatches and simply weathering the impending storm, cutting whatever is necessary to make it through the chaos. Marketing usually falls to the wayside, workers are cut, and prime opportunities to position your company as a customer service or market leader pass by unnoticed.
