Sales Forecasting -
A New Approach

Tuesday September 13th, 2016 

Please join us in welcoming Joe Shedlawski, CPIM, President, JFS Associates; Past President of APICS Corporate. Sales forecasting is becoming more difficult yet more important, as the future becomes less and less predictable. Mathematical models are limited, by nature, as they only look backwards. Clearly, it’s high time for a change in approach.

It’s important to recognize that forecasting in and of itself offers little value. It’s when that forecast is “connected” to a plan for the future, projecting resource requirements, financial performance (P&L and Balance Sheet), sales & marketing KPI’s, and trends, –  that it becomes integral to the planning and management of company performance. Forecasting needs to be done at two levels – the planning level and the scheduling level. They are NOT the same thing.
