Key to our cash management program is a 13 week AP/AR weekly forecast model. It is a vital instrument in any business’s forecasting arsenal. The key to this particular type of tool is that it helps with the prediction and management of potential risks by predicting when they might occur, giving you time to prepare for them accordingly. This means not only lessening your current risk exposure but also preventing future ones from occurring at all!
To prevent the repetition of tragic events, we must understand how and why they occur. We can then create a process not only to identify risks that could lead to such an event but also take proactive steps in our everyday lives so as to avoid them altogether.
We need risk identification, and thoughtful analysis for us all to live with peace of mind. Why? Because no one can predict the future perfectly, but we can get you 90% of the way there over the next quarter with a sales forecast. Sales forecasts are so important because they allow business owners to prepare for any eventualities. If you want your company to be successful in an unpredictable market then it's critical that you have a forecast made by someone who knows what they are doing.
Nearly all organizations, from nonprofits to Fortune 500 companies have an annual budgeting and planning process. The most important thing that they do is set a financial goal for the coming year; but there are many more moving parts than just this one task in their budgets.
They also must allocate funds according to customer needs or specific projects so as not to waste any time on things that don't work out or make sense financially speaking rather than focusing efforts where it can produce greater value down the line such as research & development and product testing.
The importance of having flexibility in your plans can be summed up by the old saying, "No plan survives contact with reality." In other words, things don't always go as planned. Have a contingency for when something goes wrong and you'll thank yourself later on!
