About this event
In this webinar, we will discuss the limitations of traditional budgeting tools, review best practices and provide measures to assess the effectiveness of planning processes.
Traditional approaches to budgeting and planning do not work in the 21st century. The pace of change, level of uncertainty and technology advances dictate new approaches to developing projections.
Best practices include identifying and monitoring critical assumptions and drivers, developing a robust projections model to facilitate updates and scenarios, creating alternative scenarios based on potential upside and downside events and integrating planning and performance management.
