The Value of Business forecasting and how it drives better decision making 

Virtually every business decision and process is based on a forecast. Anything you plan is generally based on an assumption of something happening in the future, which by definition is a forecast.  It doesn’t matter which industry you are in, whether you manufacture or provide a service, whether your company is big or small but you must have forecasts to plan effectively.   The more accurate the forecasts, the better the plan. 

A forecasters goal is to go beyond what has happened and provide the best  assessment of what will happen in the future to drive better decision making.

Business Forecasting can encompass anything that identifies the likelihood of a future outcome, provides comparative information using analytics, or drives data-driven business decisions.

Forecasting is an imperative that enables competitive advantage.

·         Strategic planning and decision-making (long-term planning)
