Do your plans and forecasts need a reality check? The quality of your strategic decisions is only as good as the quality of your forecasts. And forecasts are only good if they reflect current reality—not the reality of two, three or more quarters ago. Enter “continuous planning.” With a methodology for forecasting at frequent intervals throughout the year, continuous planning “enables managers to see trends, patterns, and ‘breaks in the curve’ long before their competitors, and thus make better informed decisions regarding products and markets.” In this free online webinar, speakers Jim Collins & Guy Jones will explain how continuous planning keeps you in touch with current reality - and one step ahead of competitors.

For sales teams to be successful in the age of the customer, they need tools that help them close more deals, faster. Some CRM tools are underused because they’re not geared to helping reps sell in the modern era. This may be because they’re complicated to use; because they’re isolated from the apps your reps use every day; or because they don’t give reps the information they need. Today, sales automation is not (just) about managing accounts, contacts, and activities. It’s about gaining insight that provides a competitive edge, having access to predictive information, being able to collaborate in real time, creating quotes in front of the customer, updating forecasts. All at any time, from any place, using mobile devices—all helping to drive sales and pipeline.

Mobile devices are everywhere. 95% of UK millennials now use smartphones1; and it’s estimated that across the globe, nearly a billion more people now use mobile phones today than did five years ago.2 Mobile commerce will continue to grow as smartphones continue to be adopted. For example, forecasts for Europe’s EU 5 (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) show mCommerce will account for 43.8% of eCommerce sales by 2020, compared to 32.9% in 2016.3 As fraud teams determine which orders to accept or reject, fraud managers are key to providing a seamless mobile checkout experience. But they also need to protect their business from fraud – and from the damage it can cause to bottom line, customer experience and brand.

Since when did budgeting become a process that companies dread? Just say the word “budget,” and you’ll elicit at least a few groans or eyerolls from teams outside of finance. It’s daunting: the weight of the next few years rests on a couple of forecasts, financial projections and line-item lists. As a result, cross-functional teams are under a lot of stress to ensure that their cases and arguments are heard. In some ways, the budgeting process almost feels combative.

In 2006 the world economy was booming, partly on the back of triple-A investment innovations. Then, suddenly, the boom ended. What fascinates the authors is the fact that almost no one saw the 2008 economic crisis coming. In this article, the authors come to terms with the reality that, in economics and business, accurate forecasts aren't possible. Therefore, they say, managers need to develop a different attitude about the future.
