This book provides ideas from the most important and influential authors in the field of forecasting on an array of topics that are highly relevant. It provides multiple perspectives on relevant issues like monitoring forecast performance, forecasting process, communication and accountability for the forecast, the use of big data in forecasting, and the role of AI/ML in enhancing traditional time series forecasting methods. Note: Content is mostly material previously published in "practitioner" journals (Foresight and Journal of Business Forecasting), with a few articles from the academic International Journal of Forecasting. Some articles report on academic research, or include case studies, but most are thoughtful discussion of important business forecasting topics, such as the role of the sales force in forecasting, or the value of judgmental overrides to a statistical forecast, or how to determine what forecast error is "avoidable." Articles were chosen for their importance, influence, informativeness, and for being provocative -- leading the reader to new considerations and ideas.
