  • John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth on Mercury-Atlas 6 on February 20, 1962, just a few days after I was born.

Forecast accuracy is crucial for achieving both customer service goals as well as ensuring proper utilization of resources to drive profitable business growth.  Given the critical role of the forecast it amazes that today supply chain organizations still...

  • With increasing frequency, I have noticed blog posts touting the position that ‘demand planning is dead.’ Why? Often, these posts claim the proliferation of products and distribution channels coupled with the accelerated pace of the supply chain makes it too difficult to create accurate forecasts.

When it comes to predicting the very dynamic supply chain management industry, those after year reviews can be quite amusing.
