Mistrust can be a serious problem for organizations. So much has been written about functional biases and misaligned incentives that one wonders how anyone can trust a forecast provider. Fortunately, new research sheds light on the factors that can build or impede trust in forecasting.
In this webinar, Paul Goodwin discusses steps you can take to improve trust and reduce dysfunctional behavior in forecasting. You'll walk away with knowledge of how to eliminate -- or at least minimize -- the element of mistrust in your forecasts.
