Budgeting is the cornerstone of strategic financial management in any organisation. It performs a dual role – acting both as a planning and control tool. There are few other activities for which an entire organisation gets involved in development and implementation processes. The scope of budgeting caters to all levels of decision making – from the operating decisions at the grass-root level right up to strategic decisions at the top management level. An error in the budgeting exercise may end up with the organisation losing sight of its strategic and operating objectives.

In order to remain relevant, various budgeting approaches have evolved over time. Each one came with its own strengths and share of weaknesses. The challenge lies in identifying the relevant approaches. The impact of budgets is traditionally reflected in financial statements. In order to keep up with varied approaches, new impact metrics have also evolved. Here too, every organisation needs to make a choice on the metrics to be used. This is where this course on Advanced Budgeting adds value. It will take you through various approaches and metrics in a simple and practical manner so that you can reinforce your knowledge and apply it in practice. Continuous use of spreadsheets will lead to a better understanding of the subject matter. The course will conclude with the group solving a case study on developing a comprehensive budget.

لقد أصبح من الضروري للذين يساهمون في صنع القرارات المالية أن يتقنوا التقنيات المتقدمة لوضع الموازنة إذ تركز أهم الشركات اليوم على تبسيط عملية وضع الموازنة الخاصة بها.
تستخدم الموازنات لربط الاستراتيجية بالتخطيط ولتسليط الضوء على انعدام الكفاءة التشغيلية وتحديد الأهداف.

وقد بات من المعلوم أيضًا أن الموازنات تستوعب إدارة الوقت وتجذب مجموعة واسعة من الإنتقادات.

وبدلًا من أن تكون مصدر إلهاء سنوي، ينبغي على الموازنة أن تصبح عملية مرنة تشمل التغيرات الاستراتيجية وظروف السوق وتحركات المنافسين وتقدم التكنولوجيا وفعالية عملية التطوير.
