Stakeholder-crowd comparison:
  • Stakeholders views. Average forecast of $1.6 billion by the second quarter of 2024, with a large, positive correlation (0.7) with overall expectations for the relationship. The improve cohort’s average forecast ($1.9 billion in 2024 Q2) is higher than the same/worse cohort’s average forecast ($1.4 billion in 2024 Q2). The difference between the cohorts’ forecasts is statistically significant.
  • Crowd's view. The crowd’s forecast is closer to the same/worse cohort. The crowd expects the annual contract dollar value to increase to $1.4 billion by the second quarter of 2024. The crowd’s lower forecast indicates an expectation of fewer transactions, relative to the stakeholders. According to the stakeholder interviews, this has negative implications for the DOD-Silicon Valley relationship.
