If you happen to be in Raleigh, NC next Tuesday evening, please come out for the APICS Triangle Chapter professional development meeting, 6:00-8:00 pm. While I can't make any promises about the caliber of the evening's speaker (me), you are assured a good meal and good conversation with representatives from many triangle area industries.
I last spoke at this chapter in 2006, on the topic of Lean Forecasting. This time we'll look at the reasons why forecasts are so wrong, and some of the common worst practices. We'll then return to the lean forecasting approach with a dive into Forecast Value Added analysis.
Note: You must register by noon on Thursday, February 7. See you there.
