Predictive modeling is a strategy used to predict possible outcomes associated with a given action in various situations such as investment, company organization, and customer relationships to make informed decisions.

Predictive modeling is a strategy that involves creating or selecting a model in an attempt to project the possible outcomes associated with a given action. This approach can be used in a variety of situations, such as creating objectives for companies and other organizations, managing an investment portfolio, or working to build and maintain customer relationships. The idea is usually to look closely at the resources available, identify a model that represents the possible use of those resources, and predict what is likely to happen if that particular use is actually implemented.

When applied to investment activity, predictive modeling will lead the investor to consider what impact the acquisition or sale of an asset will have on his investment portfolio. Several issues must be addressed, such as the integration of the asset with the other assets already in the portfolio. The investor will also want to consider how the portfolio will be affected if the asset performs contrary to the investor’s expectations and what the long-term benefits of holding the asset mean in terms of achieving the investor’s stated goals. By creating the model and then projecting the possible outcomes, it is much easier to make an informed decision about any buying or selling activity.

As far as the structural organization of a company is concerned, predictive modeling can be used to avoid decisions that have a long-term negative impact on the profitability of the business. For example, if a company is considering eliminating certain positions in the company structure, you can create a template that shows the company’s organization without those positions. Using the idea of ​​predictive modeling, it is possible to reassign responsibilities to positions that will remain in the structure and project the company’s performance under the new approach. If the results are deemed acceptable, the company can proceed with the changes. If the expected result seems counterproductive, the company can abandon the approach and look for other ways to lower expenses.

The concept of predictive modeling can also be employed when it comes to managing customer relationships. Here, the idea is to consider what kind of impact some changes in product lines, delivery options or ordering processes will have on current customers. If the model is related to implementing an online ordering system that provides immediate order confirmation and streamlines the shipping process, there is a good chance that the customer relationship will be improved by the changes. If the majority of existing customers are not in favor of ordering online, the changes could strain existing relationships, especially if the implementation makes other ordering options more complicated for customers. By predicting the possible outcomes of actions, it is possible to avoid changes that could damage customer relationships, as well as identify changes that improve those relationships and possibly lead to greater profits.
