Online Training Course Overview

Is long- and short-term planning within your organisation integrated sufficiently to provide effective and meaningful financial and business plans? If we don’t plan effectively it’s like being in a rudderless boat bobbing about on the ocean with no destination and no direction.

Financial and business planning are functions that must be integrated in order to determine where we want to be headed as an organisation and to provide the necessary direction to get there. This online course includes not only the theoretical background but also provides the necessary skills for attendees to build world class standards into their organisations’ planning, budgeting, performance measurement and reporting systems.

This COPEX online training course covers the various approaches to operational budgeting, but also the all-important cash flow budgeting, and capital budgeting for projects and new asset acquisitions. It focuses on use of the appropriate tools and techniques for attendees to become better able to carry out their planning and budgeting tasks and responsibilities.
