Budgets are the vehicle for allocating resources and measuring the success of selected strategies. An organization's strategy is the primary driver of costs. To be effective, the budget must be linked to strategy and long-term plans. Numerous organizations have achieved a series of short-term targets (budgets) but failed longer term; demonstrating the lack of this necessary linkage. Forecasting, a critical part of any successful budgeting process, can be flawed by technical errors and/or structure/emotional forces. The establishment of a system to collect, process and analyze Big Data can provide significant insights into the budgeting and forecasting process. This brief program offers specific actions to improve your forecasting and budgeting activities. In addition, more advanced techniques are identified for the participant's further review. Good budgets effectively allocate resources, provide information for decision-making and an early warning system for unforeseen events. A poor budgeting process provides a false sense of security, inappropriate or inaccurate data and re-enforces the status quo. Updated to include an exercise discussing the potential impact the recent tax regulations may have on your budget, as well as managing/using Big Data and additional industry data sources and analytical tools.
