Course Description

The days of “last year plus 3%” in forecasting are gone. The COVID19 pandemic has pretty much-destroyed planning and forecasting as we know it. So what do we do? And how can we forecast in a time of uncertainty?

“Forecasting in a time of uncertainty” will help you become more responsive and adaptable in your forecasting methods and it will help you stress-test a wide range of possible outcomes. 

Forecasting in a time of uncertainty is, by definition, unpredictable. This course will not give you a definite prediction – no one can do that – but it will help you get better at forecasting. This CPE webinar for CPAs will help you build a path through the fog of uncertainty. We cannot solve all your problems, but we can give you some tips and guidelines to help you move in the right direction.
