We all make predictions in our personal and professional lives. We base our decisions to marry, buy a house, launch a new product or hire staff on expectations about the future. In the past few years, research into improving predictions has advanced. We will look at this research and current best practices in forecasting to help us prepare better budgets and projections.

          Learning Objectives: 

          • Better understand factors which can cause predictions to be wrong
          Key Topics:
          • Why great predictions are not intuitive but the result of critical thinking, gathering information and updating predictions when needed
          • How to separate correlation from causation
          • How to recognize and overcome bias
          • Who is Thomas Bayes and why he matters 
                                                                                                                Designed for: CFOs, Controllers, Budget Managers and other professionals who work on budgets and forecasts
