In the field of business forecasting, is there a disconnect between practitioners and academia? You are invited to share your opinion in a study being conducted at Central Michigan University
Professors Holt Wilson and Samuel Spralls are conducting a study to better understand:
- what forecasting techniques are being used in industry;
- where the forecasting function is located within organizations; and
- how satisfied practitioners are with the overall performance of various forecasting methods.
Business forecasters are invited to share their opinions by taking a brief survey. The goal of the research is to get a better understanding of what practitioners want and need in order to close any gap that may exist between what is taught in universities and what practitioners need to be successful.
