Turn and face the strange. Now, maybe David Bowie could change the way he looked at the drop of a hat without a care in the world, but for CEOs of any sized organization, it’s just not that easy to make a change. But like the “Changes” lyrics say, we can’t stop time. If every day you are worrying about the effect of environmental changes, interest rate shifts, customer behavior contradictions, supply issues, and any other unpredictable factors, it’s probably time to make a change. CEOs have a lot on their plate, which means so do their employees. Maybe last year and the years before, you just couldn’t adapt fast enough. That is why you implement a forecasting solution that does the worrying for you.
In work, just as in your every day life, uncertainty and risk just happen. And when these things do happen, you want to adapt your business and accommodate the variables quickly and painlessly. With an automated and streamlined forecasting process, you make adjustments frequently and utilize the past few years of stress by applying them to your future in order to make positive changes.
17% of businesses suffered financial loss in 2015 due to poor spreadsheets, and 78% of businesses say their key financial decisions are supported by spreadsheets. It is not worth the jumbled numbers, and stress of change, if it is also hindering your processes and holding you back from becoming a more profitable organization. Time is not going to stop, so take a take a page out of Bowie’s book and make some changes.
