Competencies Relate the seven key elements of designing a forecasting system.

Instructions Your boss has asked you to speak at the quarterly board meeting based upon your success with operational forecasting.

Your job is to develop a PowerPoint presentation and oral narration that showcases forecasting skills and professional practice. The requirement is six slides that contain supportive notes per slides that integrate discussion points and strengthen the content on each slide. The expectation is two slides for strategic forecasting and production, two slides for the limitation of forecasting on labor models, and two slides on the features of job planning and the impact of forecasting. Lastly, you need to develop a one-page summary to submit to board members that reviews the impact operational forecasting can have on organizations and include two supportive references.


Here is what my professor said from previous assignment:

This assignment calls for powerpoint slides to be created along with your word document.  The slides are to address specific points identified in the Module 6 assignment and according to Adam’s Module 6 lecture, you are to record audio on each of your slides.

In your word document, I understand the importance of forecasting but you did not tell me what specifically you would forecast.  In your last paragraph you stated that you could tie forecasting into building new products but you do not explain how that would happen.  Please go back and redo this assignment.  I will be happy to regrade it. The assignment is in the upload box.
