Creating a leaner and more cost-effective supply chain requires true business collaboration— connecting supply chain, sales, and finance across data, people, and plans.

Integrated business planning (IBP) provides that competitive edge by increasing the speed and transparency of decision-making to connect the strategic and financial goals of the business and clearly identify tradeoffs and define accountability.

In this webinar, attendees will gain a unique perspective from two of Deloitte’s supply chain planning experts, including:

  • How integrated planning allows supply chain to respond to change in a cost-effective and timely manner
  • Which specific supply chain business processes can benefit from an integrated, real-time approach
  • Steps to strengthening the connection between the business and supply networks
