Quantifying the Influence of Performance Drivers and Forecasting: Regression

  • Cynthia Fraser


Regression analysis is a powerful tool for quantifying the influence of continuous, independent, drivers X on a continuous dependent, performance variable Y. Often we are interested in both explaining how an independent decision variable X drives a dependent performance variable Y and also in predicting performance Y to compare the impact of alternate decision variable X values. X is also called a predictor, since from X we can predict Y. Regression allows us to do both: quantify the nature and extent of influence of a performance driver and predict performance or response Y from knowledge of the driver X.
