Forecasting at Scale is Foresight’s latest guidebook, which explores the demands on forecasting systems in large, complex organizations. It presents a case study of how one organization—the Target Corporation—committed to fulfilling these demands by providing nearly one billion forecasts per week to a multifunctional group of users and decision makers.

The guidebook’s chapters explain and illustrate the processes and models Target created to meet these imposing demands, along with an outside commentary and response.


I think it is worth making the point that data science remains largely in its embryonic stage of development, and evidence of what works (and what does not) is still emerging. Contributions to this understanding are most welcome and will help accelerate the delivery of business value in organizations that adopt the key principles recommended.”—Simon Clarke, Foresight Associate Editor
