From vision to execution – Connected Planning in the age of (artificial) intelligence

Predictions or forecasts are naturally nested in strategic thinking and driving optimizing operations. Today, the disruptive technologies, fed by data, give companies the ability to discover things they’ve always wanted to know—as well as things they didn’t know —with more confidence and speed. But forecasting goes beyond technology and data. It’s about the right talent, solid processes and agile change management.
