C)         Limitations to your forecast

  • Sample size is important to draw relevant conclusions. Some cells contain less than 20 cases thus estimates based on these figures will tend to be unstable.
  • There is a possibility of some misrepresentation of the results due to multiple moves by employees which this analysis cannot detect. Might end up with unexpected vacancy due to interim position as it does not take into account movement in between time T(beginning)and T+1(end).
  • The forecast of availabilities assumes that all employees in a category have the same probability of movement. In addition, these probabilities cannot explain why movements occur. This is inaccurate as employee movement probability varies based on other factors.
