Overview

Forecasting and budgeting are two words that often draw an adverse reaction from many financial professionals; let us help you “turn that frown upside down” with our innovative approach to planning and budgeting. We'll move beyond the traditional techniques and show you easier ways to complete the process while cutting out the political pitfalls that end up causing a lack of accountability and can be demotivating to the staff. During the seminar we'll cover such topics as the sales/income plan, capital equipment planning, the “one-year operating plan” (formerly referred to as a budget), the “monthly operating plan,” cash planning, risk planning and much more!
