Forecasting for Buyers, Managers, and Business Executives - Course 4011

Description:

This business forecasting course provides essential knowledge about forecasting methods and budgeting and forecasting training. Using these methods helps you predict how prices will change, what inventory you will need, and the size of your staff required to run your operation efficiently. Buyers and purchasing managers should use forecasting to time their purchases for lower prices.  Budgeting and forecasting training is important for your staff so that they understand when forecasts should be used to determine how much they should buy at any point in time. Budgeting and forecasting training is also helpful for predicting sales and usage volume. It helps the manager know when to increase or decrease the workforce. Buyers and management should use forecasting to predict market changes that may affect their operation. Participants of the budgeting and forecasting training course will learn the strengths of short term forecasts and the limitations of long-term forecasts. The business forecasting course was developed by Mark Miller, Associate Professor of Business at Carthage College with many years of business experience in purchasing and supply chain management. Prior knowledge of some mathematics is helpful for those taking this budgeting and forecasting training course.

The self-running online business forecasting courses are attended via the Internet. These business budgeting classes require up to two or three continuous hours of attendance. Students are initially contacted by email with instructions on how to take the course for which they have registered. Students may attend the business forecasting course at any time during the day. This makes the classes more convenient for students. All materials are included in the price of the course and will be available online while attending classes. These courses are nonrefundable. Instructions for these courses are usually sent within a few days of registration. Normally, the Society likes to see these types of courses completed within a month of having sent out the instructions. If too much time elapses without a course being completed the student may have to register for it again.
 
It is each student's responsibility to contact the Society if instructions are not received within the time frames listed above. Failure to do so may result in additional fees. Students can contact the Society at 630-859-0250 or at propurch@propurch.com.
