With company executives now at a loss to forecast even their own key performance indicators, investors are left looking into the abyss with little to no guidance from management teams. This affects visibility and decision-making on every side of strategy and planning. If decision-makers aren’t making data-driven decisions in investment strategies or operations, they are at a disadvantage.’ Click here to read the article.
