Forecasts are all but guaranteed to be wrong. Nevertheless, companies should always aspire to be as accurate as possible and have ways to adjust their methods for forecasting in uncertain times. This half-day workshop is designed to provide you with both implementation ready and theoretical approaches for improving the accuracy of forecasts.

Identify key business drivers of growth and improve future visibility for agile decision making and learn how to implement simple yet powerful modeling techniques to remove guesswork, increase confidence, and mitigate risk through data integration, scenario management, and predictive simulation.

- Running scenarios of the course include creating scenarios for certain product categories, customer channels, and geographies and being able to quickly flex the scenarios and calculating cash-burn rates under each scenario.

- Discover alternative techniques for forecasting in uncertain times that include changing time-horizons, increments, and refresh frequency.

- Increase your focus on improving forecasting of certain key financial elements such as working capital items, liquidity and fixed vs. variable cost.
