Who is it for?
This Financial Planning and Budgeting is for non-financial directors or managers who are required to develop or use business plans and budgets.
All budget, cost and pricing decisions are dependent on a clear business strategy and an understanding of the ‘value proposition’ of the organisation.
This Financial Planning and Budgeting course begins by reviewing the broad objectives and content of business plans, then participants examine the “cash cycle” as the foundation for preparing business budgets and managing for results. The course considers the drivers of cost and the approaches to setting prices.
Financial Planning and the preparation of budgets are essential skills for anyone in the position of responsibility. This workshop will help you to understand the language and processes of budgeting, costing and pricing.
