All organisations operate in a world of uncertainties and imperfect knowledge about the future, yet despite all this, decisions still have to be made. With the dynamic environments in which most businesses operate, staying ahead of the competition is vital. This requires the ability to predict market trends, product innovations, regulatory changes and the responses of competitors to the changing landscape. Such forecasting ability is vital if one needs to reduce the probability of making incorrect decisions, some of which are often irreversible. A strong grounding in forecasting fundamentals and models, that ensure both timeliness and accuracy of forecasts at reasonable costs, is a must if one needs to stay ahead of the competition. A platform to acquire such skills has not existed in Africa until now.
