This course is designed to help those in mid-level or line leadership positions in organizations or projects who do not have financial backgrounds to understand more about the behind-the-scenes activities involved in selecting, collecting, and monitoring data involved in typical budget development.

It will help leaders who do have strong financial backgrounds develop their subordinates’ knowledge and skills so they can confidently accept a greater responsibility in managing the department’s budget.

Participants are taught how to analyze critical historical data for making confident predictions of future demand on equipment, staffing, and other budget-sensitive resources.

There is an easy-to-follow guide to making a budget monitoring worksheet using popular spreadsheet software.

Please note: This course does not pretend to be a resource for financial professionals. It is designed for those who need to understand the broad "why" of budgets but not the details of "how."
