If I Knew Then What I Know Now!
It’s hard to know what the future holds until it becomes the present—that is unless you have a crystal ball or the PPAI Market Outlook Report. And chances are your crystal ball is not nearly as effective as the Market Outlook Report. Three years ago, PPAI joined forces with ITR Economics, a global economic forecasting and consulting firm with a 94.7percent forecast accuracy rate one year out, to create this extraordinary member benefit. The report affords those who participate in the research the opportunity to see how their business’ results compare to indices that utilize participating PPAI members’ data. The report also offers participants the insights needed to plan for the future via statistically relevant leading indicators, ITR Economics forecasts and associated Management Objectives.
