The session will cover the salient points of forecasting to improve the profitability of a business and to make adequate decisions for growth. Since planning involves the future, no usable plan can be made unless business owners are able to take future events into account as much as possible.
Forecasting is a key element in the planning process. In fact, every decision in the organisation is based on some sort of forecasting.

  • Role of Forecasting
  • Steps in Forecasting
  • Techniques of Qualitative Forecasting
  • Techniques of Quantitative Forecasting
  • Practical examples of success in business through forecasting

Why is the session of relevance to our members?
