We will check your company forecasts or budgets and judge their accuracy based on a scoring model. Excellent forecasting will be rewarded with the SmartForecast Gold award, good forecasting with a Silver award. At least three years of uninterrupted Gold certifications can qualify the company for the SmartForecast Platinum award.
The underlying scoring model includes factors such as historical accuracy, clarity and plausibility of the plan assumptions, the qualification of your forecasters, and more. Depending on your needs, we will certify individual investment decision processes, group-level earnings forecasts, short and long term.
Our team members are excellent forecasters who have proven forecasting ability that is far superior to the majority of the population. Their forecasts were better than those of the remaining 98% in a crowd of 20,000 participants, the three-year Good Judgment Project forecasting tournament that involved hundreds of questions. They can suggest many ways to improve your internal forecasting processes.
Our model is being improved constantly, to ensure that the parameters we test are relevant for accuracy. The SmartForecast Gold award is given only if your company's forecasting quality is excellent, and the SmartForecast Platinum award only to the world's few corporate forecasting top performers.
