About the Webcast

There is an art to workforce management consistency that many of us ignore.  If I make a long term staffing plan, does it translate to a consistent short term schedule?  Does my long term forecast tie out to my interval forecast?

In this session, we will discuss how our math and assumptions change as we move our focus from long term planning to scheduling to real-time management.  We’ll offer tips for determining accurate staffing and forecasting models at all levels of detail.
