Download our whitepaper and explore the many ways to streamline your budgeting process. Find out how to easily create and track budgets to monitor spend. Learn how to compare different ‘what-if’ scenarios at a glance and how to forecast future expenditures and track variances.
As we all know, budgeting coordinates resources, production, and expenditures, but the usefulness of a budget depends on the reliability of the information used to create the budget. Sound management decisions can be made using budgets, but care must be exercised in using best practices that will be most effective. This white paper takes the deep dive.
The Market Need
The reality of today is that traditional practices that govern budgeting, planning, forecasting, reporting and risk management are becoming obsolete in the context of a volatile and uncertain global economy. In fact, long established budget practices provide a false sense of security and fail to cope with the speed and volatility of today’s markets.
What does it all mean?
It means that traditional budgeting processes might have seen better days and might be more of a distraction from other pressing activities, a drag on people’s time, and a purely finance-driven process.
As you consider a new budget system, remember this is the optimal time to evaluate the strategies that can help your organization develop a more agile and intelligent budget process. Use this process and this whitepaper, as decision making tools rather than as a negotiation, and positively change your organization’s perception of budgeting.
Download this white paper and be better prepared for unstable economies and drastic changes in resource levels. As such, budget constraints, and changes in strategies are inevitable, but a flexible budget that takes into account performance under alternative (what-if) scenarios will serve you and your organization better than one that ignores the future and potential risks, and invests too much time detailing the budget based on what happened in the past.
