Scott Armstrong and Kesten Green are seeking suggestions of relevant experimental evidence that they have overlooked in their new working paper, "Demand Forecasting II: Evidence-based methods and checklists". They describe the problem that the paper addresses as follows:

Decision makers in the public and private sectors would benefit from more accurate forecasts of demand for goods and services. Most forecasting practitioners are unaware of discoveries from experimental research over the past half-century that can be used to reduce errors dramatically, often by more than half. The objective of this paper is to improve demand forecasting practice by providing forecasting knowledge to forecasters and decision makers in a form that is easy for them to use.

The paper is available from ResearchGate, here.
