Chicago-based John Galt Solutions today expanded the reach of its Forecast X training programs with the successful launch of ForecastX 2-day Online Training. This comprehensive educational program is designed to educate professionals from all industries on effective statistical forecasting using the industry leading ForecastX software.

Meeting Growing Demand

Chicago, IL., September 7, 2017- Having successfully run Forecast Xpert training programs for many years both at its Chicago world headquarters and on-site at customer locations, John Galt decided to expand its offerings to serve professionals that work remotely as well as whose work schedules did not allow for travel.

"We knew there was an interest in remote training because many customers came to us with a willingness to expand their forecasting capabilities through our intensive training, but location was a problem," said Daniel Klitgaard, global marketing leader. "Even so, the response to this offering was even more positive than we anticipated. We have already scheduled a future training date to meet the demand."

Intensive Learning Opportunity

A key focus during the development of the curriculum was to ensure the same high-quality and rigorous standards translate from a classroom learning environment to the cloud. To that end it was crucial to not substitute a recorded experience for the dynamism that occurs in class. In addition to maintaining a live classroom environment, the curriculum continues to include:

  • Business Forecasting Overview
  • Statistical Forecasting Analysis
  • Basic Demand Planning with ForecastX
  • Grouping and Hierarchies
  • Beginning Inventory Planning

The innovative online program, which is led in person by a John Galt senior business consultant, offers the ideal learning environment for many younger professionals and remote workers. Planners and other professionals interested in this program may sign up for information at
