Most finance professionals in large companies are dissatisfi ed with budgets; they often believe too much time and resources are spent on this activity. Some even believe budgets may even be harmful to the organization, as managers engage more in game playing rather than maximizing shareholder returns. Many believe budgets don’t deliver all that they should and suspect there must be a better way. These thoughts and ideas have led to the development of new tools and techniques, some quite radical, even proposing the complete abandonment conventional budgets.

This programme introduces some of these ideas but also develops them so that delegates can identify some practical new approaches which they can realistically take back into their own businesses.

The programme also reviews emerging ideas and breakthroughs on managing and reducing costs without causing long-term damage to the business. It covers approaches to help organizations effectively delegate budgets and cost management responsibility to managers while still delivering long-term corporate strategy and customer value.

Salvo Global’s 3-day interactive masterclass uses a mixture of exercises, discussion and real-life case studies to keep the training lively, practical and relevant. It includes some of the latest research on good practice in budgeting and cost management.

Throughout the program, delegates will be encouraged to build an action plan, listing the positive action they are going to do when they get back to their business to make budgeting and cost management better.

For this 3-day programme, you will develop an action plan/toolbox of ideas specific to your organization and situation. You will discover straightforward templates and frameworks that can be easily cascaded down to your team which can make significant improvements to your organization within days of attending the course. The frameworks will motivate your team to look for savings and improvements. You and your team will become more efficient and effective, saving time and cost in preparing, analyzing and managing budgets. You will develop an approach for reviewing and managing costs, budgets and performance that suits your organization.

After this programme, you will be able to identify several opportunities to improve cost and budget management. The programme delivers a quick return on your investment. These benefits will be sustainable and long lasting – this training pays for itself quickly and continues paying for itself for years to come.
