Sales managers either love a new item so much they think it will outsell everyone, or they think it is a dud and under forecast equally badly. The technical people, become so enamored with their inventions that they lose all objectivity too. What I like is forecasting done by independent people–project managers or new products managers in separate departments. Mention good ways of keeping sales managers and technical researchers out of forecasting? Should they should be excluded?”
