A Simple Tool for Making Better Forecasts | Corporate Finance Professionals | Scoop.it

One of the most basic keys to good decision-making is accurate forecasting of the future. In order to bring about the best outcomes, a company must correctly anticipate the most likely future states of the world. Yet despite its importance, companies not only routinely make basic forecasting mistakes, they also shoot themselves in the foot by applying procedures that make accurate predictions harder to achieve.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, December 1, 2013 8:10 PM

 

Far too many small business owners run their business on intuition rather than cold hard facts, and the lack of understanding and limited utilisation of the numbers to be found in their businesses, is a serious impediment to their progress towards achieving any measure of success.

 

The importance of knowing and understanding the numbers cannot be over-estimated, and the reality is that without acces to the key metrics that under-pin a business, proper management becomes almost impossible.

 

This excellent article, stresses the absolute importance of the numbers in managing any business, and it identifies five key types of business measures that business owners should consider applying to their businesses.

Marshall Van Fleet's curator insight, December 2, 2013 1:41 PM

Attention! Local Small Bussiness Owners and Professionals. Do you understant the key metrics that can make or break your business? Here is an article that can help you better manage your business.

Jeff Hoffman's curator insight, December 2, 2013 2:27 PM

The numbers are the numbers and you can't run or hide from them.  Embrace them and they will tell a wonderful story of where you need to lead your company next.

Mason Powers's curator insight, January 27, 2013 11:55 PM

The author references a use case with "one of the world's top derivatives trading banks" and how they created "A Single Source of the Truth".  This phrase is compelling and leads to the idea that a firm can effectively create a single 'bucket' to store all of their critical information that could potentially be required, at a moments notice, by regulators.  The concept of 'future-proofing' your infrastructure for future demands of both the business, along with current and inevitable future regulatory requirements, is a strategy forward thiniking technology professionals will have to successfully implement in order to compete.
