The days of “last year plus 3%” in forecasting are gone. The Covid-19 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:

  • revisiting the purpose of forecasting
  • the problems of traditional approaches to forecasting
  • applying Agile principles to forecasting
  • criticisms of the Agile approach to forecasting
  • identifying the Levers of Performance
  • using simulation to test possible and likely outcomes
  • using relative forecasting.
