An Introduction to Budgeting
Budgeting is perhaps one of the most time-consuming activities undertaken by team leaders and managers. It is imperative that they have a good understanding of how to carry out their budgeting and how it fits within the objectives of their organisation. Budgets are used throughout organisations as part of the planning and control process.
