Panel Discussion

Demand Forecasting: Accuracy vs Agility

Accuracy in demand forecasting has traditionally been touted as the holy grail. But as demand-supply networks become more complex and volatile, and exceptions / deviations increasingly become the norm, the focus is slowly shifting towards agility and responsiveness to demand fluctuations. In this panel discussion we will explore the significance of accuracy and agility in demand forecasting for CPG companies.

Key Discussion Topics

Is accuracy still important - when does it lose significance? Are we measuring accuracy at the right levels? Is granular level accuracy still a problem?

What is true agility? Is it speed? Is it about reaction speed or the ability to anticipate and adapt proactively?

How can agility and accuracy help unlock revenue growth for CPG? What is the traditional view and how is it changing post COVID-19?

Is there an accuracy-agility equilibrium? How does AI/ML play a role in achieving that equilibrium?
