ADVANCED BUDGETING

Overview

The foundation of any organisation’s strategic financial management is budgeting. It serves as a planning and control tool at the same time. There are very few other tasks for which an entire organisation participates in the processes of development and implementation. Budgeting applies to all levels of decision-making, from operational decisions at the ground level to strategic ones at the top management level. The organisation may lose sight of its strategic and operational goals as a result of a budgeting error.

Over time, various budgeting strategies have developed to remain relevant. Each one had its advantages and disadvantages. The problem lies in selecting the appropriate methods. Financial statements typically reflect the impact of budgets. New impact metrics have also developed to keep up with a variety of approaches. Every organisation must choose the metrics to be used here as well. This is where this Advanced Budgeting course makes a difference. It will walk you through a variety of methods and metrics in a way that is easy to understand and useful, allowing you to consolidate your knowledge and put it into practice. Using spreadsheets regularly will help you learn more about the subject. The course will finish up with the gathering settling a contextual investigation on fostering an exhaustive spending plan.

You don’t need any accounting or finance experience because we’ll go over everything from the ground up.

We will also learn how to create the following financial models from scratch using Microsoft Excel:

  • Discounted Cash Flow,
  • the Weighted Average Cost of Capital,
  • Price to Earnings,
  • Price to Revenue, and so on – all from scratch (assuming you have no or some accounting/finance knowledge).
