In all economic environments, a well-developed and implemented budget can be an organization's key to controlling costs and efficiently allocating resources. The budgeting process is also instrumental to the successful management of cash flows and the ultimate achievement of strategic objectives. This program expands on the basic cost management, time value of money, and capital budgeting concepts introduced in Financial Decision Making for Non-Financial Managers by taking the concepts to the next level through a combination of classroom discussion and activities.
