The course is designed to help you implement improvements in the alignment of business strategy and financial budgets, recognised as being a weak link in the successful execution of company strategies. The clear focus of this course is to support tangible business improvement. Budgeting should be one of the tools used to control costs and deploy resources more effectively so that financial controllers and managers can both be active in your organisation’s planning. This unique management training course is designed for managers who seek improvement in the management of both their organisation’s business strategy and budgeting and who recognise the business benefits that can be achieved from such an approach. At the end of the course you will be able to decide which techniques will be most beneficial for your organisation and you will also have the practical knowledge to implement them immediately.

Who Should Attend Senior managers, middle managers, supervisors, organisational leaders and experienced functional managers who influence the future direction of their division or organisation as a whole. Operational managers, and managers of strategic planning teams, treasury and financial control teams from government organisations who define and implement organisational, divisional or business unit objectives, or managers who have recently taken up a more senior position and wish to gain a deeper insight into strategic issues.
