WEBINAR: Budgeting Best Practices

Budgeting is done so frequently that it becomes rote and we don’t often look at ways to learn, innovate, and improve this core process. Join Gene Siciliano, a long-time CFO, as he walks through the most effective budgeting and budget management processes he has encountered in nearly four decades as a corporate finance leader and advisor. The entire budget “flow” will be discussed, from the strategic process to the budget process to the reporting and variance management that lives on throughout the year. Specific, implementable frameworks and examples will be used throughout along with best practices and pitfalls to avoid.

You’ll also hear from the finance leaders at Texas Association of School Boards (TASB): Charlee Lane, Accounting Manager / Project Manager, and Cheryl Clise, Internal Control Analyst / Finance System Architect. Charlee and Cheryl will explain how they identified the need to change their budgeting processes, and implemented Corporate Performance Management (CPM) software to automate them. They will detail their new processes and speak about the in-depth analysis they conduct with the time that they save and their newfound access to better information.

REGISTER NOW (Thursday, June 11, at 2pm ET/11am PT)

After attending this event you will be able to:

  1. List the main elements of the budget process from strategy to reporting.
  2. Recognize the key factors in impacting the budget process, how they interact, and how you can affect them positively.
  3. Identify the key players in the budgeting process along with their roles in getting the process to achieve its full potential.
