Naked forecasts

A flashcard detailing 'Naked Forecasts' antipattern in supply chain management. Naked forecasts refer to using macro-level average forecasts instead of SKU-level forecasts for inventory. It critiques the overreliance on aggregated forecasting accuracy and the false belief it can solve supply chain issues. The humorous image depicts a man flattering a king for a 'gorgeous' forecast, metaphorically dressing him with the forecast, highlighting the inappropriateness of one-size-fits-all forecasting. The card encourages dressing naked forecasts with detailed SKU-level forecasting.
