Testimonials

Junaid Jafar, Executive Director - Tadhamon Capital, Qatar

This is one of my first experiences in a class about negotiating. It’s very beneficial especially if some of the things you see yourself doing or common mistakes you shouldn’t be making. Jim puts these into perspective and says don’t do that, don’t get deceived to negotiate. Always try to negotiate with the procedure. These small tips I think you should follow then use a lot of his input into each and every negotiation and hopefully we improve in time. It’s been a great two days! There are a very diverse number of people from different walks of lives and Jim kept us entertained throughout the whole two days!

Program Agenda

Day 1

SESSION 1 – The business context and historic / traditional budgeting

  • Course introductions
  • How Budgeting fits with the wider subject of strategic and operational planning
  • History and principles of budgeting
  • Traditional / historic budgeting: often much maligned, but why it is so widely used and what benefits it can deliver.
  • The common problems associated with traditional budgeting and how they can be avoided or at least minimised.
  • Creating a “value-add” budget process: where business managers see budgeting as providing genuine help and benefit/value to the challenges of business management.
  • The trainer will draw upon relevant case studies dependent on the mix of delegates and their industry sector backgrounds.
SESSION 2 – Newer approaches to Budgeting and Forecasting.

The newer budgetary techniques and how do they compare with traditional / historic budgeting: what are the advantages and disadvantages of each..?
  • Value based budgeting
  • Performance Budgeting and KPI Budgeting
  • Zero based budgeting
  • Activity Based Budgeting
  • Creating a good-practice Performance Management culture, where budgeting is undertaken within modern management practices of accountability, change management, communication, leadership and a performance / incentive culture.

SESSION 3 – Project and Capital Budgeting / “Capex” evaluation

Businesses are a mixture of both process / operations and projects. In this session we explore the challenges of project budgeting and the associated capital expenditure “capex” evaluation disciplines
  • The basic accounting differences between “opex” and “capex” and the consequences in the key financial statements, including depreciation treatment
  • The main challenges of project budgeting – combining capex and opex, plus contingency issues
  • Evaluating capital expenditure – introduction to the discounted cash flow techniques and their practical application
  • Incorporating sensitivity analysis to support the decision-making process
  • The necessary post-audit / post project evaluation discipline – often poorly applied

Day 2

SESSION 4 – “Beyond Budgeting”

How the Beyond Budgeting concept has grown internationally through to the present day – the Beyond Budgeting Round Table
  • The basic concept and sought-after benefits – how much is changing the planning / budgeting process and how much is about management philosophy and culture?
  • The key principles of Process and Leadership within Beyond Budgeting.
  • Abandoning the negotiated annual performance trap – incentivising people to achieve market / benchmark success, not to beat an internal negotiated budget
  • How Beyond Budgeting aligns with Rolling Forecasts
  • The practical first steps in moving towards BB: delegate action plans.

SESSION 5 – Rolling Budgets and Forecasts (Part 1)

  • The Rolling concept and its inherent benefits and downsides: if traditional Budgeting is replaced by a Rolling approach, what can we NOT do in future
  • Rolling budgets or Rolling forecasts: which works better :understanding the management accountability implications
  • Different aspects and types of Rolling – we explore the range and scope of possibilities. Should Rolling apply to strategic and capital budgets – if so, conceptually how can this be done.
  • The behavioural disciplines: Rolling only works when management act professionally and do NOT play the typical budgetary “games”.How can this be effectively implemented.

SESSION 6 – Rolling Budgets and Forecasts (Part 2)

  • The 9 key “decision parameters” of practical implementation for Rolling.
  • Delegates will undertake an exercise (for take back to the office) in setting out the key aspects of how they hope to apply the 9 parameters within their own organisations
  • Delegates will have the opportunity, if they wish, to briefly present their conclusions to the course as a whole for feedback from thecourse leader.
  • Course closure
