Practice 10: Budgeting & Forecasting
Show that your operating unit can generate a positive impact on the bottom line.
Few topics resonate in the executive suite as loudly as expense management. Unlike revenue generation which relies on the cooperation of external parties (your customers), spending is viewed as completely controllable. Your stakeholders and executives care about every dollar you spend—every dollar. And, as you will quickly discover, they will call on you to defend your spending decisions. The One Stop LeaderShop manager training program contains a full set of tools for constructing an annual budget. We also provide templates for monthly variance analysis and re-forecasting.
Budgeting & Forecasting is included under the One Stop LeaderShop mega-heading Cost Management. You might also be interested in learning Practice 11: Equitable Cost Allocation and Practice 12: Vendor Management. Be sure to check out the One Stop LeaderShop Workbook. This CD-ROM contains all of the forms and spreadsheets referenced in all 14 One Stop LeaderShop Practices. Put your learning into practice right away!
