Overview

When we think about change, we realize that the world is changing at a faster and faster rate; however, it has become increasingly difficult for organizations to keep up with the latest developments. Even more intimidating is the realization that if we don’t keep up with the world around us, we are doomed to failure. When we look at the most successful organizations in our economy today, we recognize that the primary reason for their success is their adaptability. If we are not keeping up with change, we need to look at our planning model as the primary culprit. This program will introduce a completely new and integrated planning model, which eliminates many of the problems of the traditional budgeting model and substitutes new ways of planning that promote accountability and adaptability, and takes much of the politics out of the budgeting process. If you want to learn a new approach to budgeting, this is the program.

Major Topics:

  • The need for a new system to keep pace with the rapidly changing world
    • Why the old system isn’t working
    • Significant problems caused by the traditional budgeting system
    • Developing an integrated planning system that brings people into alignment
  • Looking at the business model in light of changing times
    • Determining how your business model might be under attack
    • Assessing the risk of the business model
    • Using the business model as an alignment tool for the organization
  • The key is strategic planning
    • Aligning the organization with Vision, Mission, and Core Values
    • Determining which products and services are best for the future
    • Taking strategic planning to every department
  • Operational planning
    • Improving your revenue planning
    • Developing the budget from the five-year plan
    • Using flex budgeting for changing conditions

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how to develop a planning system that works in fluid world
  • Learn how to take politics out of planning and insert real accountability
  • Develop an integrated planning system that aligns the organization
