The central theme of this seminar is that no business can succeed or, indeed, survive without preparing plans and controlling performance in relation to those plans. In this discussion, we highlight the fact that planning and control embraces all aspect of business, and even extend beyond conventional roles to give structure and support to patterns of managerial responsibilities and provide information configured to support managerial decision- making. The generic perspective from which the topic is looked at makes it imperative to divide it into three parts: planning, control and budgeting itself.
