An occasional series about business today
Forecasting revenue is always a very difficult task. This is particularly true for emerging companies who have no historical data on which to base neither their estimate nor a client base providing a regular stream of recurring revenue.
Forecasting is neither an art, nor a science. It is a process. Your forecasting process must be integrated with your sales process. What you want to know is:
Probability of closing should be avoided at all cost. They are highly subjective and their determination and interpretation vary from one individual to the next. Base your forecast on facts, not on “guesstimates” or wishful thinking.
A forecast is one of the most crucial management tools. A forecast too conservative is as damaging as one that is too optimistic. The operating motto for forecasting is “Forecast what you can!”
