Advanced Forecasting Techniques: Fine-Tuning Workload Predictions

Without an accurate forecast of workload and staff requirements, the scheduling process will be inefficient. This session will explore various approaches to help fine-tune your tactical call forecasting process. Whether you’re forecasting by spread-sheets or with workforce management software, you’ll learn how to improve the accuracy of your daily and half-hourly forecasts through techniques like regression analysis and the use of correlation coefficients.

Seminar attendees will learn to:

  • Calculate forecast accuracy by various methods.
  • Outline additional components of time-series analysis beyond trend and seasonality.
  • Identify predictable cycles in call centre workload.
  • Apply correlation coefficient techniques to fine-tune forecasts.
