Optimize Your Budgeting Process
The goal of this session is to analyze and understand why many public sector organizations are not satisfied with their budgeting process, examine what are the key design factors that have to be addressed in order to adapt the budgeting process to your organization reality, and then review the steps of the process itself and discuss some best practices that will help you get more of the people involved.
The session will be an excellent starting point for anyone who wants to analyze and pose a diagnostic on key design aspects of their budgeting process and acquire a few optimization tips to bring back to their organization.
