Effective Budgeting Skills Course


In this course you will obtain insights into S.T.R.A.T.E.G.I.C budgeting, with each letter reminding you of a core budgeting principle in the public sector. Because budgeting is at the core of control and coordination of resources, it is fundamental to the strategic outcome of any organization. Moreover, budgeting in the public sector has moved towards a more performance-informed budgeting system, which is not just a simple allocation of funds but an exercise where strategic interests are considered and budgeting principles adhered to. You will learn how to put budgeting principles into practice. Interesting case studies illustrating this will be used to make your learning even more relevant to your job.


This budgeting training is designed for managers and professionals in financial and non-financial roles who have responsibility for financial matters and those who need to know more about finance to improve their planning, costing and budgeting skills.
