How does One Build the Budget?


Management reviews the budget Repeat this cycle and Finance Gartner creates the forms

until either the management team is happy with the budget or budget managers lose their will to live

Finance aggregates the budget

Managers input their data by accounting period

Challenges that Planners Face include:


High processing time due to lack of strategic guidance and missing link between financial and operational plans (limited flexibility ability to react) Low plan accuracy (variance accuracy) due to inaccurate data Limited level of detail for the budget High number of Excel sheets that need maintenance (versions / locations) Need to expand to: rolling forecasts, operational planning, investment planning, bulk updates, pre-built depreciation calculations, version control
