Forecasting the Realistic Budget (FM)

Budgeting can be a challenge in good times, let alone when economic times create new obstacles. But imagine how a well thought-out process and a well-constructed budget can help set the tone for a roadmap to the future. Learn methods to achieve a balanced approach to revenue assessment, expense management, cash flow and modeling budget assumptions. An Excel® template will be used to show how modeling different "what if" scenarios can help create a workable and realistic budget.

Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss the budget planning cycle and methods to incorporate firm or departmental objectives into the budget 
  • Define types of budgets and uses for each 
  • Identify methods to develop the revenue and expense components of a budget 
  • Demonstrate the value "what if" scenarios play in the development and analysis of the budget
