Overview

The days of “last year plus 3%” in forecasting are gone.

The COVID19 pandemic has pretty much destroyed planning and forecasting as we know it.

So what do we do? And how can we forecast in a time of uncertainty?

Our “Forecasting in a Time of Uncertainty” webinar will help you build a path through the fog of uncertainty. We cannot solve all your problems, but we can give you some tips and guidelines to help you move in the right direction.

Our webinar will cover topics including:

  1. Revisiting the purpose of forecasting
  2. The problems of traditional approaches to forecasting
  3. Applying Agile principles to forecasting
  4. Criticisms of the Agile approach to forecasting
  5. Identifying the Levels of Performance
  6. Using simulation to test possible and likely outcomes
  7. Using Relative Forecasting

Forecasting in a time of uncertainty is, by definition, unpredictable. This course will not give you a definite prediction – no one can do that – but it will help you get better at forecasting.
