"With careful and detailed planning, one can win; with careless and less detailed planning, one cannot win. How much more certain is defeat if one does not plan at all!" So said Sun Tzu in "The Art of War" written in 400BC and his advice is as relevant today as it was then.

Success in any organisation depends on being able to develop and implement effective plans to achieve the organisation's objectives. Although some see budgeting as a burden, the most successful organisations use the budget process to produce powerful plans to keep them on track to deliver their goals and vision.

This course will provide you with an up to date guide to effective budgeting.
