Forecasting

 

The forecasting of key business metrics helps an organization paint a picture of what their organization will look like at some point in the future.  In good economic times a company may forecast key metrics quarterly, in bad they may forecast key metrics daily. 

 

What Organizations Need A Forecast?

 

All organizations need to forecast their key metrics.  A forecast helps an organization measure their success or failure in an objective and quantifiable way.

  • A Key Metric must be measurable.
