Gilliland will discuss how accuracy is largely determined by the nature of what is being forecast — its "forecastability."

He has over 15 years of forecasting experience in the food, apparel, and consumer electronics industries. Mike edits the Forecasting Practice section of Foresight: The International Journal of Applied Forecasting, and has published articles in Foresight, Supply Chain Management Review, Journal of Business Forecasting, Analytics, Supply Chain Forecasting Digest, and APICS magazine. Mike holds a BA in Philosophy from Michigan State University, and Master’s degrees in Philosophy and Mathematical Sciences from Johns Hopkins University.
