How rolling forecasts can provide more clarity
Abstract: Over the last three years, economic volatility and supply chain disruptions have provided a stark lesson on the weaknesses of traditional budgeting and forecasting methods. Under the best of circumstances, it’s difficult for manufacturers to forecast their performance over the coming year. When economic and market conditions are prone to change suddenly and unexpectedly, a traditional static forecast can quickly become obsolete. That’s why many manufacturers have adopted a rolling forecast model. This article discusses the difference between static and rolling forecasts, and the benefits of rolling forecasts.
