Oliver Wight is delighted to launch an essential new read to help businesses re-align product, demand and supply plans in the short-term. ‘Integrated Tactical Planning’ was written in response to the lack of available information on a business process that tackles the short-term planning horizon. When COVID hit, the need for this resource became even more evident as companies struggled to adapt quickly leaving them vulnerable. The book equips businesses with the knowledge and tools on the Integrated Tactical Planning (ITP) process in order to respond to such changes, increase competitiveness and reduce costs.
Authored by Oliver Wight consultants Rod Hozack and Stuart Harman (Oliver Wight Asia Pacific), Dawn Howarth (Oliver Wight EAME) and Todd Ferguson (Oliver Wight Americas), this insightful read captures their real world experience of helping some of the world's leading organisations transform their performance, and defines ITP as an industry process that all companies can and should be implementing.
Hozack explains, “Most businesses now have some form of a monthly planning process such as Integrated Business Planning, which is fine for the mid- to long-term future to identify and address the gaps in strategy and business plans, but in the short-term they need a complementary suite of processes with more frequent cadence and more granularity of detail to actually make the monthly plan happen. This is Integrated Tactical Planning.”
Over eight chapters, the book collates Oliver Wight’s expertise providing the fundamentals of ITP including the strategies, methods, and requirements for businesses to successful execute the process. The authors also provide real-life examples of how ITP has been applied in various industries and businesses.
“Those at the forefront of executing the company’s business plans can be truly liberated by ITP to get on and do their job to the fullest. The finance team, operations and logistic managers as well as sales can all capitalise through ITP. This book will educate them and guide them as they embark on their Integrated Tactical Planning journey,” states Hozack.
Integrated Tactical Planning is available in hardback and as an e-book
