Better Budgeting: The Budgeting Process Video Course
Budgeting consumes a massive amount of time and resources. It’s a stressful and busy time. Are there ways to improve the effectiveness of the investment we make in the budget process? Can we make better budgeting decisions that lead to higher performance?
This course goes step-by-step through the budget formation process. The purpose and role of the budget can best be explained in the context of strategic planning. We’ll explore which analyses can be done throughout the year to take pressure off the very busy budgeting season. Some lessons cover the nuts and bolts of budget reporting and budgeting tools.
This course is part of a three-part series called Better Budgeting. The three parts are:
- The master budget and sub-budgets
- The budgeting process
- Budgeting alternatives
You can watch all three parts in the order above or watch any part as a stand-alone course.
