Webcast Summary

For companies looking to optimize business performance, a zero-based budgeting approach represents one of the best alternatives to traditional budgeting. But to be effective, zero-based budgeting requires more than starting with a clean slate every year. For finance leaders, zero-based budgeting is an essential tool for focusing attention on investments to which a company needs to commit rather than, as is often the case with traditional budgeting, targeting expenses to cut from last year's activity.

During this Webcast, we will reveal how finance leaders can employ a zero-based approach that aligns budgets with their companies' strategic goals. We will discuss:

  • The key differences between traditional budgeting and zero-based budgeting,
  • How to determine whether zero-based budgeting is the best option for your company,
  • The role of finance leaders in establishing a culture of accountability to support a zero-based approach to budgeting, and
  • How finance leaders can continually refine zero-based budgeting not only to improve visibility into costs but also to channel resources to productive investments and strategic priorities.
