Do your plans and forecasts need a reality check?
The quality of your strategic decisions is only as good as the quality of your forecasts. And forecasts are only good if they reflect current reality—not the reality of two, three or more quarters ago. Enter “continuous planning.” With a methodology for forecasting at frequent intervals throughout the year, continuous planning “enables managers to see trends, patterns, and ‘breaks in the curve’ long before their competitors, and thus make better informed decisions regarding products and markets.”
In this free online webinar, speakers Jim Collins & Guy Jones will explain how continuous planning keeps you in touch with current reality - and one step ahead of competitors.

Technology leaders need to rethink strategic
planning in the age of the customer. Technology
strategies are too often just collections of loosely
related project plans and too focused on tech
project delivery milestones. Strategies designed
“by IT, for IT” fail to engage business leaders and
executives because they don’t explain how tech
strategy leads to better customer experience and
outcomes. This report explains how technology
leaders can create a strategic tech plan that is
customer-led, insights-driven, fast, and connected.

La Harvard Business Review a interrogé 385 lecteurs représentant des entreprises de plus de 500 employés à propos des défis rencontrés dans le domaine de la planification, ainsi que des outils qu’ils utilisent. Le verdict est sans appel : 9 sur 10 utilisent des tableurs, et seulement 22 % sont satisfaits du résultat. « La planification basée sur des feuilles de calcul en silos n’est plus adaptée à la rapidité d’évolution, ni à l’envergure du business d’aujourd’hui », conclut la Harvard Business Review.
Heureusement, une solution existe !
