The current, technology-driven, turbulent business environment presents many challenges to business managers. One primary challenge is the ability to predict and plan for the future. Changes are constant, and companies struggle to find ways to find and manage resources.
Traditional budgeting is found to be outdated and irrelevant because it is:
- Too time consuming
- Based on assumptions that may not be valid
- Focuses on past events instead of future possibilities
- Creates a “use it” or “lose it” mentality
- Restricts creative thinking in resource management
Rolling forecasts are the wave of the future, rapidly replacing traditional budgeting. In this practical webinar, you will discuss the critical differences and advantages of rolling forecasts over traditional budgeting. You will be challenged to think outside the box and embrace the advantage of rolling forecasts.
