Our custom face to face forecasting training courses are tailored to the requirements of your individual team.
4 pillars of face to face learning:
To ensure the training is as valuable as possible we make it our business to understand what will be most useful to the team 1-2 weeks prior to the workshop. The approach is an in depth interview with stakeholders to understand their needs to make the course as valuable as possible. On the first day we clarify our understanding of these objectives so throughout the course we can use real life examples and explain in detail how the content relates to the customer's objectives they have stated.
Assessing client objectives, whilst key to understanding, is also important to ensure content is relevant. We draw upon the skills and capabilities of our senior team to tailor the courses and the content so it is as relevant as possible. The course is presented using PowerPoint and live examples via Excel, the programme of choice for forecasting. Finally, the training deck goes through a rigorous quality control to ensure it is up to date with the latest thinking in forecasting and again aligns with the ethos of the company we are working with.
In order to maintain pace, fun and engagement we use a variety of things to keep you interested. Hands on practical case studies, fun quizzes, group exercises and the trainers frequently share the explanations.
4. Continuous Learning
Following the training course clients get free access to theHub where you can find the latest thinking about forecasting as well as several hints and tips to help you practice your skills and put the learning into practice.

A J+D pharmaceutical forecasting training course is usually over 1-3 working days at your offices or at a central venue. Clients often rate their knowledge when they enter very low and often leave demonstrating a significant improvement in both confidence and understanding. Most importantly, they have enjoyed the experience and have been able to put their learning into practice immediately.
