Course Description

Accountants can more effectively support their organizations by helping business leaders understand and anticipate how their business environments are changing. Utilizing forward-looking tools such as driver-based rolling forecasts, league tables for relative performance measures, and dynamic resource allocations, management teams can operate with greater business agility. This workshop walks through the process of developing rolling forecasts, which are the cornerstone of these improvements. 

Attendees will review the five attributes of diamond-level forecasting and evaluate over a dozen design decisions that are key to structuring effective rolling forecasts. The workshop explores how predictive logic diagrams are constructed and used to identify critical drivers, which dramatically improves forecasting power. While it is impossible to predict the future perfectly, accountants can use rolling forecasts to help their organizations become future-ready for whatever comes.

Learning Objectives:


  • Determine how to utilize forward-looking tools such as driver-based rolling forecasts, league tables for relative performance measures, and dynamic resource allocations

  • Recall the process of developing rolling forecasts

  • List the five attributes of diamond-level forecasting and evaluate over a dozen design decisions that are key to structuring effective rolling forecasts
