CFOs are taking on more responsibilities than ever before, but one of their essential tasks continues to vex them is budgeting. The exercise of setting targets, allocating resources, and providing incentives for employees to achieve certain goals has been a time-worn tradition for most organizations and their finance functions. Today’s forward thinking finance chiefs are reevaluating their current budgeting practices in search of new tools and strategies to make budgets not only more effective, but also more efficient.  
 
The new webcast will explore:

  • The latest obstacles in the budgeting process
  • How CFOs can take the lead on the transformation of their current budgeting practices;
  • Why it’s so critical to adapt budgets and forecasts as your business evolves and the economic environment changes; and
  • New strategies and tools to consider that can enable you to bring your approach to budgeting to the next level
