      ASCI is proud to extend an ASCI member discount to Oliver Wight Virtual Courses this year. Integrated Tactical Planning is a four half day virtual course. Oliver Wight have identified the processes required to ensure a successful cross-functional approach for managing detailed-level planning and execution in the short term, tactical planning horizon. Despite most organisations putting considerable effort and energy into executing their plans, many still struggle with poor customer service, high costs, high inventories, and frustrated employees.   

      Integrated Tactical Planning is all about getting a small quorum of the right people to manage the short-term horizon of the organisation’s plans, focusing on weekly and daily planning processes, and ensuring alignment back to the Integrated Business plans.

      The outcomes are designed to:

      • Reduce the potential for the Executive, and other senior managers, being dragged into the day to day, releasing them to spend more time on the longer-term and strategic horizon
      • Put mechanisms in place to empower people to make decisions and know when and how to escalate issues
      • Maintain responsiveness, but not at the cost of being reactive

      Who will benefit from this course?
      This course is the final, and sometimes all important piece, in joining the tactical to the strategic, in an Oliver Wight Integrated Business Planning process.  It is valuable to anyone who is operating inside their company’s commitment zone, i.e. where we have purchased finished goods and materials, and have geared up to make, supply, ship, store, and promise products to customers.

      Cognitive Control Towers : How They Are Transforming With Industry 4.0

      For decades, companies have based their decisions on historical data which was often outdated. Today, transformed by Industry 4.0 and enabled by integrated real time data, leading organisations are making a paradigm shift towards platforms that allow them to proactively manage the future based on data-driven insights about the present.

      Companies now have more supply chain data at their finger-tips than ever before – vital information that can go a long way in driving real time insights and significantly improving operational efficiency and customer outcomes. While building access to supply chain data is a good first step, the success of the organisation resides in the ability to connect and structure the available information to provide end to end transparency and visibility in a timely way.

      Cognitive Control towers are rapidly enabling this transparency and the long promised vision of the Supply Chain Control Tower as a central information cockpit that integrates business processes across the supply chain and supports proactive exception management is being realised.


      Three key takeaways from the session:

      • Dispel some common myths on Control Towers and understand how they are changing
      • Where do you start the journey and how can Cognitive Control Towers help transform your supply chain
      • Case studies from leading clients who are successfully leveraging Cognitive Control Towers to drive value in their supply chains.  

      Our expert presenters include:

      • John O'Connor, Partner, Deloitte
      • Chris Coldrick, Partner, Deloitte
      • Tina Nortcott, Director, Deloitte

      ASCI is proud to extend an ASCI member discount to Oliver Wight Virtual Courses this year. Managing Demand is a four-day virtual course covering best practice forecasting and demand management in the integrated business environment.


      Overview

      Best practice forecasting and demand management in the integrated business environment.

      We operate in increasingly dynamic marketplaces with global competition, consumer fads and shortening product lifecycles.

      What is the workshop about?
      This four half day virtual course is for managers at all levels who are involved in the demand management processes. It enables them to understand what is happening in the market in terms of customers and consumers and its impact on the business, and leads directly to greater predictability of short, medium and long term demands on the business. It also shows how predictability is used to drive business performance in service and inventory to reduce waste and obsolescence.

      The course covers the topics of understanding and controlling demand; the assumption-based demand planning process, the impact of the extended supply chain, and the vital activity of demand control to bring order into near term activity. It particularly describes the business process of demand management as a critical element of the Oliver Wight Integrated Business Planning process.

      In addition it ensures that there is understanding of how this is a business process that improves sales and value and not just a forecasting process.
