Planning and Budgeting for the Agile Enterprise
A driver-based budgeting toolkitBy
- Richard Barrett
Planning and budgeting is one of the hottest topics in accounting; global spending on budgeting software is booming and is predicted to continue to grow throughout this decade. It's big business. This book focuses on 'Driver-Based' budgeting (ie using external and internal non-financial drivers to predict live item expenses). The book shows the benefits that Driver-Based Budgeting brings and as such is a 'tool kit for change'. Case studies and worked examples are used throughout to ensure understanding, as well as checklists on implementation issues.
â¢Management Accountants responsible for the planning and budgeting process inside their organisation.â¢Financial Directors, Chief Financial Officers intent on implementing world class finance functions inside their organisations.â¢Students and management accountants studying for their professional examinations with bodies such as CIMA in the UK and the CPA* in the USA NOTE:ALG Software would market the book using its extensive database of these targets in both the UK and USA.
