The methods used by organisations to forecast the future have changed very little over the last sixty years whilst the speed of change and the level of volatility in the external environment has increased inexorably to hitherto unseen proportions. However, one of the causes of this volatility, Internet technology, may be responsible for providing a solution to the problems of forecasting in highly complex and fast moving macro and micro environments.
