Online Training Course Overview

Are your financial plans and budgets based on accurate costing of your products and services?

Are your forecasts of sales and costs objective and realistic, or are your budgets perhaps based on ‘what we did last year’ plus a percentage uplift?  Many organisations continue to use out-of-date costing systems and information. Many organisations continue to plan and budget using an unrealistic percentage uplift of previous years results.

This Anderson online course includes forecasting techniques and cost behavior analysis, using examples, exercises and real-life case studies throughout to provide attendees with the awareness and essential techniques and skills to prepare more effective financial plans, and budgets for both planning and control.
