"Practical Applications of Multiple Regression in a Business Environment"
This workshop will focus on the implementation and integration of sales forecasting and marketing analysis. It is a systematic approach that combines both market theory and statistical techniques to produce structural analysis, program evaluation, and sales forecasts, all of which provide actionable decision support analysis. The approach offers the most to the analyst because it emphasizes structural analysis or causality among the market drivers in the model, which may either be single-equation or multi-equation in scope.

"Forecasting New Products at all Stages"
This workshop covers the introduction of a new product (or service) from inception to rollout with emphasis on major forecasting issues. Since new product introductions involve virtually all the activities of marketing and business, we will touch on the many areas involved. Case histories will be discussed.
