Description

For a project to be successful, careful planning and budgeting is of critical importance. Even if a project is delivered on time and meets the end-user requirements, if it overshoots the budget then it is considered a failure- hence stringent analysis and smart forecasting are crucial for meticulous management of budgets.

Our three day training session teaches best practices in budgeting and forecasting, with case studies based on real case corporate scenarios. This hands-on intensive course targets professionals from financial as well as non-financial backgrounds, and helps them to grasp fundamental budgeting principles and forecasting methods, gain an understanding of budget processes, and improve their financial literacy. The course will equip candidates with a collection of tools and insights to enable them to fulfil their professional goals as well as the expectations of their companies and investors.

Get started on achieving excellence in financial planning, and drive your organization forward to achieve the required goals and targets!
