About the Webcast

Most companies use inefficient forecasting methods. 

Structural limitations of planning spreadsheets restrict planners from using the most appropriate forecasting methods as well as prohibit selecting all of the items that are most important for accurate planning.

Join us we discuss:  

  • the data required to develop good forecasts 
  • metrics which are most important for accuracy (some are counter intuitive) 
  • best methods for forecasting time-series data 
  • the “ideal” mathematical forecasting process
