10 Steps to Successful Budgeting
Calculate for Business Success
The budgeting process may produce anxiety, but it can be managed. The keys are planning, organization, documentation, preparation, and follow-up. The essence is plan first, budget later.
10 Steps to Successful Budgeting walks you through the fundamentals, explaining your role in your organization’s planning and budgeting process. Authors Lianabel Oliver and Eduardo Nin start with a macro perspective, providing an overview of the planning and budgeting process and how it is typically structured within an organization. They then move to preparing a sound budget and defending it to the next level of management. Their combined experience of over 30 years in planning and budgeting will help you navigate this process successfully. The simple, clear explanations and true-to-life examples of budgets and planning tools will help you clarify your departmental spending needs for yourself and others.
Each planning and budgeting cycle, the authors explain, represents an opportunity for change. It is a chance to revisit the old and embrace the new. The budget is not something to fear on your to-do list, but a time to reexamine who you are, what you do, and how you can use your resources more effectively.
