Oliver Wight Americas Launches New Product Offering: Integrated Tactical Planning

Share Article

Thought leaders and business improvement specialists, the Oliver Wight Companies have once again developed a process that will help companies take even more control of their business processes to ensure their strategic and tactical plans are executed successfully.

“Integrated Tactical Planning saves many people-hours and truly empowers individuals to make the right decisions, at the right time, throughout the organization,” says Michael Effron, Chairman of Oliver Wight Americas.

Even if businesses currently have a good Integrated Business Planning process, there is typically firefighting still taking place in the short term. As a result, businesses fail to realize IBP’s full benefits or deliver the projected results. Although IBP should encourage senior managers to focus on months four and beyond, the reality is that unless you have robust processes dealing with the short term, this just doesn’t happen. The results of a successful deployment of Integrated Tactical Planning will define a better way of executing the IBP plan while managing and communicating changes that inevitably happen in the short term. The outcome is more time for senior managers to spend on strategy and the longer-term horizon.

Our process covers the activities within the Integrated Tactical Planning time frame, referred to as the ‘planning time fence.’ Within the time fence, the same core plans used for Integrated Business Planning – product portfolio, demand, supply, and associated financial projections - are also used for Integrated Tactical Planning. Whereas the monthly Integrated Business Planning process manages resources and supply capabilities to meet the product portfolio and demand plans, the key concept of the Integrated Tactical Planning process is managing demand to match the relatively more inflexible resources and supply plan inside that short-term planning time fence.

“Integrated Tactical Planning saves many people-hours and truly empowers individuals to make the right decisions, at the right time, throughout the organization,” says Michael Effron, Chairman of Oliver Wight Americas. “So, as each day, week, and month passes, the process allows for proactive gear changes to shifting circumstances, rather than costly uncontrolled reactions or firefighting.”
