Integrated Business Planning for Oil & Gas Upstream

22nd February 2016


With lower oil prices here for the foreseeable future, management teams will continue to grapple with capital decisions, cost control, and potential acquisitions/ divestitures. The only certainty is that business plans will change. As management teams deal with these issues, it is critical that important decisions are made in a coordinated manner and collectively across functions with enough lead time for efficient implementation. Operating, marketing, and financial plans all need to be integrated. Scenarios need to be modeled, agreed in the best interest of the whole, and then managed through implementation.

Integrated Business Planning (IBP) is a structured management level process that connects your strategy with execution by coordinating the plans, decision making, and performance management across functions. The teams that synchronize all the moving parts throughout their companies to reduce cash to cash cycle time and control spend will be the most successful in these challenging times. In this class we will:

• Introduce Integrated Business Planning and its benefits
• Review your business drivers and produce an IBP design that aligns with how you manage and budget the
business, your organization structure, and your underlying planning and reporting data structure
• Examine IT requirements and supporting systems for IBP
• Examine case studies from Nexview client work
• Review tips and traps for implementation and change management techniques
