How to Future Proof Forecasting

An important and durable lesson of recent massive disruptions is that organizations need to forecast and plan with agility so they can quickly adapt to evolving economic, market, legal, regulatory and behavioral conditions.

The most effective planning incorporates external intelligence and data sources because organizations do not operate in a vacuum. Technologies have emerged that make it feasible and practical for organizations to incorporate external intelligence and data in their planning, analysis and reporting processes.

Providing executives and managers with a balanced internal/external perspective enables them to future-proof their forecasts by anticipating change and being able to react with agility, whether in a steady-state environment or when confronting crisis conditions.
