Bjarte Bogsnes holds the unique distinction of being the only person to have "blown up the budget" at more than one company: at his previous employer, the European plastics manufacturer Borealis, and at his current one, Statoil, the Norwegian oil giant. A dedicated champion of the Beyond Budgeting movement, Bogsnes takes the concept of rolling forecasting-itself a relatively new approach-one big step further, with dynamic forecasting.

In describing what forecasters are trying to achieve, Saffo outlines six simple, commonsense rules that smart managers should observe as they embark on a voyage of discovery with professional forecasters: Map a cone of uncertainty, look for the S curve, embrace the things that don't fit, hold strong opinions weakly, look back twice as far as you look forward, and know when not to make a forecast.

In 2006 the world economy was booming, partly on the back of triple-A investment innovations. Then, suddenly, the boom ended. What fascinates the authors is the fact that almost no one saw the 2008 economic crisis coming. In this article, the authors come to terms with the reality that, in economics and business, accurate forecasts aren't possible. Therefore, they say, managers need to develop a different attitude about the future.

Securing the information created with its products has emerged as a primary concern for CSOs, CIOs, IT departments and other C-level executives.

Read this report to understand how the age of the customer requires tech management to transform into a customer-facing function in speci?c ways. Business technology (BT) brings together technology and traditionally customer-facing roles like marketing, sales, service, brand/product management, and ful?llment for the purpose of deploying systems of engagement that provide di?erential customer experience. Firms must build these systems of engagement from the outside in, according to how customers move in market spaces. The rules for planning, building, and running systems of engagement are not the same as for previous generations of tech management because customers are not employees. The increasingly crucial role that digital technologies play in customer engagement elevates the CIO role in business — if CIOs can move beyond the traditional IT focus on technology assets and adopt an expanded view that centers on customer experience and choice

Historically, manufacturers have “looked to the past” to help predict what they need to do in the future. This would include basic business intelligence, powered by spreadsheets, and even manual processes. The challenge is that what will happen may be something outside of what the past can predicts – who, 25 years ago, would have considered the Internet as a primary vehicle for commerce, or that Big Data would become both a treasure and a tragedy for organizations? Consider other factors, such as regulations, largely transient customers (where loyalty and brand aren’t what they used to be), disruptors (such as new entrants and technologies), and the need for manufacturers to “move faster than ever” – in effect, to be able to plan for the future before it happens.
