Your firm budget is most effective when it is directly tied to business goals, yet fewer than 41% of the organizations surveyed indicated their budgets were tightly aligned. How can financial managers avoid this widespread problem and implement better budgeting and analytical processes?  In this program, the speaker will cover a range of advanced budgeting techniques and analytical tools for the experienced legal administrator. Topics include the budget scope, differential budgeting techniques, forecasting, and analytical tools.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze ways to align budgeting techniques to organizational goals
  • Apply advanced analytical tools to the budgeting process
  • Prepare and evaluate capital and cash flow budgets
