Paris Tech Forecasting- the pain index Website Graph

The yellow cluster represents those who see forecasting as a simple extension of the month-end. They all have a low score on the pain index. The grey data are those whose forecasting pain is confined to the finance function, with low to medium scores. The orange spheres (it’s a major task for the finance function and department heads) and especially the blue blobs (it’s a constant drain on the whole business) mostly have the higher scores on the pain index.
