In today’s uncertain market conditions, meaningful budget assumptions have a very short shelf life. Recent research by Business Finance magazine and APQC has found that the majority of budgets have targets that become obsolete before mid-year. Fortunately finance teams are finding ways to become more effective by replacing annual budgets with a series of rolling forecasts that match up budgets with incoming actuals.
This first webinar session will cover:
- The biggest factors motivating organizations of all sizes to move to rolling forecasts
- The seven reasons why small to mid-sized business have an even stronger case for change
- How to get started with rolling forecasts
- Case examples from small to mid-sized companies that are already changing
Guest speaker Steve Player is the Program Director for the Beyond Budgeting Round Table (BBRT) North America. He is also the co-author (with Steve Morlidge) of Future Ready: How to Master Business Forecasting (Wiley, 2010) and the co-author (with Jeremy Hope) of Beyond Performance Management (Harvard Business School Press, 2012).
