Better budgeting: a report on the Better Budgeting forum from CIMA and ICAEW

This publication is based on the Better Budgeting Forum held in London in March 2004. Participants in the forum discussed a range of issues relevant to the central theme, debating possible ways of improving the budgeting process and highlighting areas for future research.

In the ensuing round table discussions, participants highlighted examples of best practice in their own organisations, as well as suggesting areas deserving of further research or improvement. The debate was lively, and, if there was one overall conclusion of this session, it was that budgeting is alive and well, though practice is evolving with new tools and techniques.

The increasing use of forecasting has meant that budgets have become more forward-looking and better linked to strategic planning.
