These are uncertain times. All but essential businesses in many parts of the U.S. are now working from home. Retail establishments have closed. Manufacturing plants are being re-worked to adapt from making car parts and sneakers to manufacturing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Some industries are booming. Some are busting. And most just don’t know what the future holds.
Unfortunately, from a financial standpoint or an operational standpoint, you can’t ignore the changes that are happening to your business. The question is: how easily can you adjust your forecast to reflect these changes?
Join us on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 at 4pm EDT for a live webinar on agile forecasting. Lee Lazarow, our FP&A Technology Director, will present examples of how our clients use IBM Planning Analytics for forecasting and what-if scenario planning. You’ll hear how:
- A retailer/manufacturer used a percent approach to adjust numbers while dealing with a shut down in production
- A financial services company, which uses driver-based planning, updated their plan by changing their starting assumptions
- A medical not-for-profit created a new high-level, driver-based model to reflect decreased donations of supplies and money
Whether you are looking for a better planning solution, or if you are already an IBM Planning Analytics client, you will learn something from this webinar. Our goal is for you to come away with an understanding of different approaches for more nimble and efficient planning.
