CUSTOMER CASE STUDIES
Senior leaders from a UK based food manufacturer - operating in multiple categories, channels and markets - sought IGD’s help during their business planning process. The overall output would feed into strong and compelling customer account plans.
Whilst the manufacturer has a regular business planning cycle which they follow every year, they felt that building their strategies in the current environment, with so many unknowns, required a different approach.
The post-covid environment and remote working also made this process more challenging than before. The manufacturer needed our experts to help identify key areas of focus based on the ever-increasing amount of information available in the market.
Our team also implemented a process that brought multiple functions together to input their ideas remotely. All of which was used to create robust and impactful plans.
IGD provided global insights, structured support and expert facilitation to the manufacturer’s business planning process
