Getting Off to the Right Start
The most critical step in the workforce management process is the first one: data collection and analysis. The best predictor of future call workload is past data, so gathering the right data is critical to the workforce management process. Attendees will learn where to look for data and how to scrutinize the data to make sure it’s appropriate to feed into the forecasting process. The class will review mathematical techniques for analyzing data and making needed adjustments. The role of business drivers and how to incorporate them into the planning process will also be discussed.
Seminar attendees will learn to:
- Identify the sources of contact centre planning data.
- Describe the impact of call routing and button usage on input data.
- Identify data aberrations and how to adjust for them.
- Outline business drivers most pertinent to the planning process.
