Description

Economist magazine reports that 80% of companies in the UK are unhappy with their planning and budgeting systems. Managers say that planning takes too long and costs too much. They say that traditional, once-a-year, fixed performance contract budgeting doesn't work in today's rapidly changing world. And in some organisations, key parts of the management system aren't linked together: strategy, budgeting, forecasting, performance measurement, management reporting, incentive compensation and corporate governance, all take place in separate parts of the business, and are managed in functional silos.

For organizations operating in an environment of continuous change, traditional budgeting has become out of date. Today, many senior management and line managers are turning to rolling forecasts to inspire and lead their organisations to superior performance.

This high value practical workshop will:
• Illustrate the principles of business planning and rolling forecasts with examples and case studies drawn from a variety of industries
• Identify the process for implementing rolling forecasts in your business
