BUDGING FROM STATIC BUDGETS: WHAT FINANCE LEADERS NEED TO KNOW TO MAKE THE MOVE TO ROLLING FORECASTS

Sponsored by Host Analytics
DATE: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2019
TIME: 2:00 PM ET
DURATION: 1 HOUR

Webcast Summary

Finance leaders have long relied on annual budgets to establish consistent expectations for their companies throughout the course of a calendar year. But finance leaders also recognize that changing economic and geopolitical conditions can upend or even render obsolete assumptions that underlie budgets. For this reason, a growing number of companies employ rolling forecasts alongside or even in place of budgets.   

During this Webcast, we will discuss:

  • What distinguishes rolling forecasts from traditional approaches to budgeting,
  • What characterizes organizations that implement rolling forecasts effectively,
  • How to gain support for rolling forecasts throughout your company, and
  • Best practices for establishing a culture of collaboration to maintain the timeliness and accuracy of rolling forecasts.
