Dr. Mark Moon introduces a pioneering approach to systematically maximizing the financial value and strategic impact of your demand forecasts throughout the entire organization. He shows how to implement world-class demand forecasting management and use it to drive quantifiable and consistent competitive advantage.

Moon identifies the characteristics and elements of a comprehensive Demand and Supply Integration (DSI) process, shows how it differs from Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP), and helps you recognize the symptoms of failures in demand-supply integration. You’ll learn how to approach demand forecasting more systematically, and select and apply the right techniques for your business, government agency, or military organization.

Drawing on nearly two decades of experience as a pioneer in the field, Moon offers field-proven solutions for optimizing everything from traditional statistical methods to performance management. He then shows how to use demand reviews to transform forecasting into a core element of strategic business planning.
