A Necessary Evil - The Budget

By Teresa Jurgens-Kowal, Ph.D.

Budgeting is not a task that many people look forward to, but with specific tools, the process of planning, assessing, and controlling expenses becomes much simpler. Techniques to enhance the budgeting process include

  • Top-down budgeting
  • Bottom-up budgeting
  • Zero-based budgeting
  • Year-on-year budgeting
  • Variance analysis

Finally, presenting and defending the operating plan with a budget allows a firm to take strategic action to achieve its goals and objectives. Using a budget to plan future work is critical to effective business performance.
