Budgeting is more than mere vague oversight. Budgeting should deliver the corporate strategy, add shareholder value and lead to a well-run organisation – for the benefit of all involved in it. Effective budgeting leads to real control – effective day-to-day operational control and more. This course demonstrates what proper budgeting and operational control can do. It shows that:

  • Budgets can deliver
  • Budgets must deliver
  • Budgets should be tied to corporate strategy
  • Cultural harmony – method / reports / people – is vital
  • Having clear objectives and deliverables is a must
  • Report and feedback leading to action will deliver

Training objectives

This course will help ensure that participants:

  • Appreciate the importance of the budgeting process
  • Take ownership of it
  • Use it as a daily working tool – not an annual exercise – to help run their part of the operation
