The purpose of the workshop is to widen the knowledge base and skill set of attendees tasked with planning and forecasting responsibilities. This will be accomplished through discussion and teaching the skills needed to set up a systematic methodology for forecasting. We will use a “structured modeling” approach, by which causal factors (economic, financial, regulatory and industry-specific) are identified and used to drive the market forecast. Attendees will benefit from a coherent and disciplined forecasting thought process to better understand how the end results relate to key lead indicators and other forecast inputs (drivers). The program will discuss how to obtain hard-to-find historical data and forward-looking forecasts, define forecasting objectives, explore ideas and approaches to the discovery of relationships between markets and economic drivers, and show how to set up a methodology for forecasting and “what-if” analysis.
