Discover new frameworks and approaches to integrated business planning in the supply chain.
Managing changes to the supply chain comes with its unique challenges. Supply chain planning presents an especially complex challenge for the change practitioner as multiple stakeholders and functions are involved. Successful Integrated Planning for the Supply Chain evaluates different approaches to change interventions and explores how Integrated Business Planning could be implemented in any organization to create sustainable improvements.
Using frameworks based on extensive academic research, Richard Lloyd considers the potential blocks to an effective supply chain, and advises on how to deal with and identify uncertainties within an organization. Numerous international case studies included throughout show that every project has its own set of unique problems. Successful Integrated Planning for the Supply Chain is an invaluable guide for anyone who needs to implement change in the supply chain.
Homes in on the nature of the organizational challenges facing practitioners when implementing integrated business planning, making it a very practical read. The book is filled with case studies that reflect on organizational challenges, providing a well-rounded understanding of the human side of integrated planning in the supply chain.

I would recommend this book to any supply chain director, and especially to those who are struggling with the implementation of sales and operations planning and/or integrated business planning, and the selling of these concepts to the board and commercial colleagues.

You can find tons of literature on supply chain management but rarely a book that goes so deeply and systematically into the most important topic in that field, which is organizational development and change management. People make supply chains work, not systems, algorithms or methodologies. That needs supply chain leadership, which is what this book is for. Outstanding.
