The Death of Budgeting…

“Budgeting is Dead” – is it really?  Come and join the discussion at CPA Congress 2011 at Sydney Convention Centre at Darling Harbour at 1030 am on Wednesday 19 October.

Forget budgeting – it can increase costs and cause major management and organisational problems with little benefit. John Vaughan, CPA, will discuss these problems and show you an alternative way that is being used by leading global companies.

Budgeting can be a huge cost and cause major management and organisational problems with little real benefit.

I’ll be discussing the problems budgeting causes and showing you a better way that’s being used by leading global companies. Here’s a snapshot of what I’ll be sharing on the day…

  • The #1 mistake most companies make – which makes it virtually impossible to meet your budget objectives.
  • What most companies do with their budgeting and how it destroys staff morale and can be a huge waste of time.
  • How budgets can lead to organisations to “plan to fail”.
  • How to better assess risk and incorporate that into your planning.
  • The fallacy of forecast accuracy – do you really want to forecast, or do you want to plan (or don’t you know the difference?)
  • A better way…

I’d love to see you there. If you’d like a complimentary pass to the CPA Finance and Accounting Expo so you can attend, please send an email to me and I’ll arrange it for you.
