Best Practices in Rolling Forecasts
Everyone wants a crystal ball to be able to peer into the future. Rolling forecasts built on driver-based and project-based planning do just that.
Rolling forecasts built on driver-based and project-based planning create a framework that supports better decision making. A rolling forecast simply means that each quarter or month, a company projects four to six quarters or twelve to eighteen months ahead.This allows executives and key decision makers to see both a financial and operational vision of the future.

These reviews enable managers to understand problems, challenges and trends sooner and improve their proactive approach to those problems, challenges and trends.
