Advanced Planning, Budgeting & Cost Control Training

Budgetary control is the most widely used tool for planning and monitoring organizational activities. Importantly, the budgets are inextricably linked with both strategy formulation and cost analysis.
For these reasons, it is crucial to interpret how costs behave so that realistic budgets and plans can be produced, and appropriate financial and non-financial resources can be made available to the business. Knowing some of the limitations of budgetary control, it is also imperative to complement and integrate the budgets with other organizational techniques, such as the balanced scorecard.
