Q I’m an inventory control manager. My job involves financial analysis and cost management. I rely on internal sales forecasts, but they’re often off. How can I do a great job if I’m stuck with bad data?

A Without pointing fingers, investigate how sales forecasts are made. Join a cross-departmental team devoted to forecasting. Or befriend the executive who oversees this area. Explain that your goal is to learn more about forecasting and contribute to the unit’s success. Suggest ways to increase the forecasts’ accuracy so that everyone wins.
