Event 1: Beyond Budgeting (25 October 2021)

In this first session, Alan will introduce the concept, benefits and practical application of Beyond Budgeting. This is an introductory course for middle / senior management who recognise that their existing traditional planning and budgeting process is no longer applicable in a fast-changing world. You will discover why this alternate management philosophy (NOT just a new type of budgeting) is becoming increasingly utilised. In a fast-changing world, traditional budgeting and the associated command-and-control approach to management is considered out of date and inappropriate – often more of a handicap than a sensible means of business resource planning. Here is a practical and proven alternative…

What to expect:

  • An alternate general management model to business management
  • How removing the traditional command-and-control management system liberates a business to focus on
  • beating the competition, not the budget
  • The concepts and benefits of adaptability and devolution
  • Take away an initial assessment of how your organisation aligns with BB principles

Event 2: Practical Implementation of Rolling Forecasts (26 October 2021)

Rolling Forecasts have been around for many years as a management concept, but despite its obvious attractions few organisations have successfully implemented Rolling Forecasts. In this course, Alan explores the concept and potential benefits and addresses real-life practicalities in making “RF” a key element of the management system. Gain an understanding of how to design, introduce and successfully utilise a Rolling Forecast concept, whilst avoiding the potential downside of endless planning / budgeting. Appreciate the value of incorporating Rolling Forecasts or Full Year Forecasts into your strategy management system / balanced scorecard. The course is designed for all those managers, supervisors and officers who are involved in business performance management and budgeting and who realise that “there has to be a better way than the one we currently have…..”

What to expect:

  • What is the concept and benefit of implementing Rolling Forecasts?
  • Understand the difference between Full Year Reforecasting and a full version of Rolling Forecasts: the pros and cons of each approach
  • How to apply in practice to gain the benefits of RF without creating an “endless planning and budgeting administrative bureaucracy”
  • Take away an initial design of a pragmatic RF management report

Event 3: Finance as a Strategic Business Partner (27 October 2021)

To meet the needs of a fast-changing world and to generate value for the organisation’s customer and owners, the Finance function faces a fundamental challenge:

To continue the Traditional Role: Control, compliance, backward-looking accounting, the unloved budgetary bureaucracy: often described as reactive scorekeeping.

OR

To become a Strategic Business Partner: Contributing proactively to the success of the organisation in co-operation with other functions and departments.

Many finance professionals seek this transformation of their function, but whilst the ambition is there the successful achievement is very often missing, and many Finance functions struggle to demonstrate a genuine value-add business partnership role.

What to expect:

  • Learn what being a Strategic Business Partner (SBP) really means and how the finance department can uniquely contribute value to that business partnership
  • Understand a range of practical ways to achieve transformation of the finance function to become a successful and valued strategic business partner
  • Recognize relevant management tools and techniques to support successful “SBP”
  • Appreciate the skills, attitudes and behaviours necessary for a successful outcome

Event 4: Implementing a Cost Reduction Programme (28 October 2021)

Costs are the most controllable element of any organisations profit and loss result. The current disruption of the business world through pandemic and the economic consequences arising have created ever-greater focus on achieving Cost Efficiency. Cost efficiency is not just a demand for lower total costs. It is a focus on achieving competitive value for our money – ensuring that whatever is spent creates maximum value for the organisation. That may result in lower total costs, or maybe in improvements in unit costs or cost efficiency ratios. This course will challenge your thinking on cost management and open the door to wider aspects of proactively managing the costs of an organisation within a clear strategic context.

What to expect:

  • The importance of linking cost efficiency within the overall strategic context of the business
  • The need to have clear cost targets as part of the strategy management system
  • An understanding of the crucial importance of management’s leadership and active engagement – this is not an exercise of detailed cost analysis within finance department
  • The need to focus on all costs and not be distracted by superficial cost reduction
  • Gain an appreciation of the key management tools to support cost efficiency including “simplified ABC”
