Many organization use budgeting and forecasting as a means of providing and updating tactical operating plans and controlling costs, but world-class organizations use these, and other powerful tools, within a framework specifically designed to develop and execute business strategy and manage organizational performance.
But most managers are trained for their functional roles, not for finance. Yet every manager is expected to understand finances well enough to make realistic budgets, manage cash, and hit his or her targets. This power-packed training course will provide you with the skills and tools to do this, with the aim of achieving your organization’s overall goals.
A budget is a plan to:
- control your finances
- ensure you can continue to fund your current commitments
- enable you to make confident financial decisions and meet your objectives
- ensure you have enough money for your future projects
It outlines what you will spend your money on and how that spending will be financed. However, it is not a forecast. A forecast is a prediction of the future whereas a budget is a planned outcome that your business wants to achieve.

Value Proposition Budgeting
This approach to budgeting looks at each line-item or budget category to find out why money is being spent in certain areas and what value it provides to customers, employees, or other stakeholders.
The greatest value proposition examples usually include a headline, sub-headline, or short paragraph and a visual to add extra interest, such as an image, video, or illustration. After reading value propositions, customers should have no misunderstandings about what a brand stands for and what it can offer them.
Outcome Based Budgeting (OBB) at glance
This approach begins with using priority outcomes as a focal point for budgeting and connects resources necessary to achieve those outcomes by using performance data and evidence to make budget decisions. In addition, this approach will foster collaboration between departments and reward services that obtain results by shifting dollars away from programs that are ineffective and focusing on the return on investment.
When allocating resources under this approach, budgeting maximizes the value that are spent:
- Funds are allocated by Priority Outcome vs Department
- Outcomes are the starting point vs. last year’s budget
- Program budget proposals vs. department budget submission
- Foster collaboration to get the most out of your services
- Budget Team Review (Office of Management and Budget)
A move to focus on outcomes rather than inputs or outputs means that the focus of agencies becomes about delivering outcomes, and for the ultimate benefit of the citizens. This then ultimately changes the relationship between federal government and agencies from one of forensic micro management of spend to one that is collaborative and focused on whether outcomes are being achieved.
This shift away from a shopping list of wishes from agencies to a prioritised budget that is focused on the delivery of outcomes is vital if government is to remain relevant to the wants and needs of the consumer – the citizen.
