And you'll develop the necessary skills to meet the increased demand for thoughtful and realistic forecasts."--BOOK JACKET.

Dance with chance : making luck work for you by Spyros G Makridakis( Book )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Makridakis, Hogarth and Gaba-business professors and risk management experts-explore the powerful role of luck in our lives. For example, it's commonly accepted that to live a long, healthy life, weight, blood pressure and cholesterol should be controlled and smoking is verboten. However, the authors cite an analysis of mortality rates that suggests that these factors have only a minimal effect on longevity-and in the case of body weight, our common knowledge might be entirely wrong. Early sections reconsider medical and investment advice in the light of the unacknowledged and unstudied role of pure chance, and the authors make surprising recommendations: avoid doctors, seek boring investments and ignore almost everything in business books. The second-and weaker-section of the book offers abstract strategies for living with greater uncertainty. Although lacking in specific practical advice, the book is worthwhile for its provocative thesis and its invitation to readers to relinquish the "illusion of control." (May)"--Publishers Weekly Reviews

Prognosetechniken für Manager by Spyros G Makridakis( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in German and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In den letzten Jahren haben sich die Methoden und Verfahren für Vor hersagen sowohl in der Theorie als auch in der Praxis stark weiterent wickelt. Die Notwendigkeit dafür ergab sich aus der komplexer werden den Unternehmensumwelt und der stärkeren Abhängigkeit des Unter nehmens von eben dieser Umwelt. Allerdings ist, wie so oft, auch auf diesem Gebiet ein deutlicher Zeitabstand zwischen theoretischer Ent wicklung und praktischer Anwendung der Verfahren zu erkennen. Unter der im Umfang geringen Literatur zum Gebiet der Vorhersage verfahren ragen vor allem theoretische Werke heraus, die meist die Ent wicklung und detaillierte Darstellung bestimmter Verfahren zum Gegen stand haben. Nach Auffassung der Autoren fehlen jedoch Veröffent lichungen, die einerseits das gesamte Gebiet der Vorhersageverfahren in Form eines gründlichen Oberblicks einbeziehen, andererseits aber für den Manager im Betrieb leichter faßbar sind und auf seine s!'ezifischen Problemstellungen eingehen. Die Autoren haben daher versucht, im vor liegenden Buch sowohl dem Gesichtspunkt der Verständlichkeit und Anwendbarkeit Rechnung zu tragen, als auch die Spanne der derzeit entwickelten und verfügbaren Verfahren aufzuzeigen. Sie haben dabei den Manager im Auge, der mit betrieblichen Vorhersageproblemen kon frontiert ist und nach Lösungsmöglichkeiten für sein Problem sucht
