Press Release April 2014

Oliver Wight sponsor Singapore S&OP Innovation Summit

Business improvement specialists, Oliver Wight, are pleased to announce they are gold sponsors of the S&OP Innovation Summit in Singapore on 26-27 June 2014. This is the first time the industry-renowned event has been held in Singapore. It will gather together some of the worlds most dynamic senior executives operating in the area of sales and operations planning from across the region. Oliver Wights Singapore-based partner, Don Harding, will speak at the summit. His presentation, Integrated Business Planning, the next evolution of S&OP, will explore how S&OP has developed since it was originated by Oliver Wight in the early 1980s, to the integrated management process it has become today. Integrated Business Planning doesnt just balance supply and demand, as S&OP does, but integrates all the different departments, from finance, to R&D, even IT, explains Don. Crucially this aligns the entire organisation to the strategic business plan and gives the executive team a realistic view over where they are, and where they are planning to be, so they can make decisions now to influence that position and improve top line growth. Integrated Business Planning is a powerful tool in todays business environment. More and more companies in Singapore and across Asia are discovering the power of Integrated Business Planning in allowing senior management the visibility and control they need to successfully manage the entire organisation, says Don, who has over 25 years supply chain management experience. A confident and engaging presenter, Don has experience in implementing Integrated Business Planning from both an in-house and consultancy perspective, and has spoken at numerous conferences and workshops worldwide. Oliver Wight are gold sponsors of the event, and Don will be available over the two days to speak to delegates, answering questions and offering practical business advice.
