Just as weather forecasts help you plan your week, sales forecasts enable businesses to better prepare and plan for the future. This LAP explains the different types of sales forecasts, how they work, factors that influence them, and the ways in which sales forecasting benefits all businesses, from startups to seasoned companies.
LAPs (Learning Activity Packages) are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about sales forecasts, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, ideas (Make it Pay!) for immediate application, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. Click here for a sample of the student section. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 22 slides.
