Integrated Business Leadership by Richard Watkins
How to achieve the vision, with one truth, one team and one way
This highly practical new book describes a complete model of Integrated Business Planning (IBP), covering the aspects of Innovation, Demand, Supply, Finance, Human Resources and IT, based on the Delos model. It is probably the most comprehensive book of its type, covering Vision and Strategy through to tactical execution. It is based on 30 years of experience of working with companies to implement IBP.
It shows how to operate this process across single sites and multi-national businesses. It also details a standard implementation process. In particular it emphasises that there is no one size which fits all. It illustrates the critical part that the CEO of any business plays in the success of the implementation of IBP. That is why it is titled “Integrated Business Leadership”.

Integrated Enterprise Leadership by Rod Clarke and Gilles Lauga
Managing Change in the 21st Century
In the 1980’s the concept of ‘Sales and Operations Planning’ was invented. It is core to the effective management of a business and should be implemented as part of any ERP implementation or implemented to make business processes reliable and to support the achievement of business objectives. Over the years it has been developed to cover not just Sales and Operations, but the whole business, and this book describes how to apply it across the total business both in single site companies (i.e. small to medium size businesses) and multi-site organisations (i.e. major large companies with manufacturing sites across many countries selling, marketing and R&D operating across many countries). It tackles the systems, process and behavioural aspects of any implementation of Integrated Business Leadership.

CEO's Guide to Performance Measurement by Rod Clarke and Richard Watkins
The Delos Seven Performance Measures
All companies measure performance to determine how well they are doing both internally and externally. However most companies develop measures which cause conflicting behaviour which then achieves confusing and at worse the wrong results. Additionally, most companies measure everything in sight, without having a consistent framework. This book provides a consistent framework based on the achievement of Return on Capital Employed, which can be used effectively to measure the performance of a business. This short book (designed for the CEO without much time) sets out the seven few measures which we believe are really key to achieving a consistent Return on Capital Employed, and points which measures do not work in today’s environment – Like efficiency, purchase price variance and actual v budget.
