In our work with organizations worldwide, one of the first questions Oliver Wight Business Advisors ask their client’s employees is, “What is your company’s strategy for the business?” Very often, they don’t know.

We are pleased to present the first of seven white papers, Connecting Strategy to Execution, which shows how to integrate the corporate strategy with operations by cascading it down the organization by creating supporting strategies and plans at the business unit and functional levels.

This white paper demonstrates the principles of connecting strategy to plans and execution in each business function using Integrated Business Planning (IBP) as the means of deployment. The six subsequent white papers in this series show in greater detail what happens at each step in the IBP process to enable this deployment.
