Forecasting & Analysis
How do you focus your forecasting efforts for maximum impact?
Leading companies know how to target top-of-mind issues—such as navigating market uncertainty, establishing governance and controls, increasing shareholder value, and building trust externally—and they focus forecasting efforts to aggregate and filter helpful information in these areas.
Is your forecasting process designed to address your strategic business issues?
- You need a reason for the forecast. How will the forward-looking information facilitate specific business decisions?
- You must find a way to acquire and maintain accurate, relevant, and timely data that support business decisions.
- The forecasting discipline includes a commitment to managing the business in a forward-looking manner, embedding the forecasting process in the organization, and consistently using forecasting as an element of strategic decision making.
Every business tries to anticipate the future; successful businesses take an active, aggressive role in shaping it. A well-designed and information-rich forecasting process is a prerequisite for this effort.
