Forecasting & Planning During A Pandemic (Part 5): How To Plan & Forecast After Covid-19

First, we experienced major difficulties in forecasting and planning as countries entered lock down - now we face another challenge as countries start to open back up. Make no mistake, the uncertainty of the past few months does not end as businesses return to work and life returns to normal. Forecasting and planning are becoming harder and it is difficult to know what demand patterns will return and which have changed forever. We are here to help and will help you understand what the 'new normal' looks like for your company. Top experts in various industries will provide insights into how to plan now and going forward.

This town hall is interactive, so get your questions ready for our expert panel.

You will learn:
  • What do with the data you have collected during the crisis and how to adjust it going forward
  • What the new normal will look like and how to forecast for it
  • How to prepare for recovery of demand as countries open back up
  • How to know how your customers will behave as lock down is lifted
