CEOs to CFOs, to the vice presidents of business units state that Integrated Business Planning (IBP) has resulted in financial performance that has exceeded their competitors by a significant margin. However, these same leaders understand that as their IBP process reaches a higher level of maturity, the collaborative engagement of both operational and financial groups becomes even more crucial to maximize the ongoing benefits of IBP.

  • Why achieving a best practice IBP process requires regular participation of the entire executive team
  • How finance’s role must evolve in a mature IBP process
  • Why a mature IBP process can make annual planning a significant non-event
