  • 7 Tips for Forecasting a New Product

    Hello,

    I have some tips for forecasting a new product. Hooray for the educated guess.
    1. You're not alone. Everybody who starts a new business or develops a new product for an existing business has the problem of forecasting. They say misery loves company, but that's not business relevant. What is relevant, though, is that nobody whose business relates to startups thinks "But how can I forecast? It's a new product?" is a valid problem.

    2. Avoid the tops-up forecast based on a small piece of an enormous market. "This is a $10 billion market and we're going to get one tenth of one percent of it" just doesn't cut it.

    3. Look for hooks and ladders you can use to build a castle of assumptions.

    4. In summary, just about anything can be broken down into meaningful and manageable components. Break it down, and that gives you some logic to follow. It helps to explain.

    5. Occasionally you'll find some sophisticated data analysis that works. My favorite story on this was forecasting the growth of personal computers in Latin America based on a model used first in epidemiology. We projected four economic strata, and the spread of computers as if it were infection or contagion, at different rates in the top two strata.

    6. Another tip that works sometimes is to look for a model of how some other product was introduced and spread.

    7. And, most important: remember, always, that business forecasting is much more about following with plan vs. actual management than it is about guessing right. Break your forecast of a new product into components so that when you track it you'll be able to see what's different from what you expected.

    Thank You

Forecasts often involve a detailed analysis of historical market data. Ideally, We want to return at least 10 years and to review data monthly and try to develop a good understanding of market dynamics. This is useful when preparing for similar future events.
