The State of Connected Planning


With FY19 coming to a close, planning efforts for FY20 are ramping up, and the question on everyone's mind is "how can we stay ahead of our competitors?"

Connected Planning has become a driving force for organizations to strategize with greater agility, giving them the edge to become successful leaders in their industries. If you’re ready to break away from the pack this year, we’ve got you covered with Anaplan’s inaugural State of Connected Planning report. (Click here to download your free copy!)

We surveyed over 1,000 planning professionals across all business functions in 45 countries and 18 industries to uncover leading planning trends in finance, supply chain, sales, marketing, human resources, operations, IT, and workforce functions.

Our State of Connected Planning report investigates how leading organizations have accelerated their business value by implementing a Connected Planning approach.

“Disruption doesn’t discriminate—to survive and thrive in today’s tumultuous business environment, data considerations are key to a more proactive, agile, and responsive state of planning.”

Within the report, our expert team reveals four significant trends that companies with extreme growth have experienced. Over the next month, we’ll unpack these on the Community blog and share how you can put them into practice to improve your planning process.

We’re kicking off our series with Anaplan’s Chief Planning Officer, Simon Tucker, for a deeper dive into the four trends explored in the report.
