Understanding Budgeting Training

Transforming finance training

Understanding Budgeting Training

As they move into management roles staff get given financial accountability and responsibility, however, this is rarely accompanied by formal budgeting training.  Therefore they have to pick it up on the job.  This leads to budgets being seen as spreadsheet exercise and full of jargon, which is daunting – and who looks forward to that time of year?

This training course is specifically designed to demystify budgeting, simplifying the jargon and ensuring that you understand the principles and concepts behind it rather than getting caught up in templates and spreadsheets.  A highly practical course with many exercises and case studies to help embed the learning.

We recommend that this is course is followed by our Bespoke Budgeting Workshop so that the learning can be applied to your specific organisation’s processes and templates.  

Our trainers on this course have extensive experience of making finance interesting, engaging and even occasionally fun!
