How to Improve Your Demand Forecast Accuracy
Demand Management is More Critical Than Ever
This course will be delivered LIVE, remotely, over three, 3.5-hour sessions.
In this course, you will become familiar with and practice the hard and soft skills that it takes to balance supply and demand within a multifunctional organization.
It seems like everywhere we look, supply can’t keep up with demand. So why bother building an unconstrained demand forecast when the supply organization has no hope of meeting that demand? Shouldn’t we spend our time and attention on getting the supply chain right rather than bothering with the demand plan now?
