Management Matters: Lab Budgeting 101

Midland, ON (PRWEB) January 18, 2013

The laboratory budget is a short-term plan for the future. Its purpose is to establish a forecast of spending to guide one’s R&D programs during the next fiscal period. The best way to begin determining a budget is with a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis of the company and its product lines. Discussions with laboratory staff members to determine budget needs are also important. Find out all you need to know about budgeting for your lab in this webinar.

Participants will learn:

  •     Advantages of the SWOT process and how to use it effectively
  •     Importance of outsourcing in cost savings
  •     How to understand their businesses and spending requirements
  •     Disadvantages of spending substantially either under or over budget
  •     To complete their budget in a timely way through the basic principles of project management
