Is your forecast precise enough to make a confident decision?

If the answer is no, then you need to gather more information. The tornado chart is one of the most useful and easy-to-understand methods to assess confidence in a forecast.

Using a tornado chart, you can assess how much the forecast might change if things go better or worse than anticipated.

You can also assess which uncertainties have the greatest impact on the forecast —those are the very inputs you should research further if the forecast precision needs to be tightened up.
