Who Should Attend?

This program is designed for those responsible for preparing / completing budgets for their departments, as well as those accountable for managing their organization’s cost control process, but who have had no formal training or experience.  It is very useful for managers and non-managers in any industry, from small to large companies / organizations, who need to keep a tight control on costs in what is currently an unprecedented challenging business environment.

About The Program

Successful cost control skills are key for those who want business success, since staying within budgets are related to an organization’s strategic objectives, and help decide the overall direction.  Not having control on a organization’s cost can have severe consequences.  But often, managers and others responsible for cost control are just ‘assumed’ to understand how to control cost, even though there are many aspects of cost control that are not ‘intuitive’.  Rather than learn by trial and error, after this program you can get your cost control right first time!

Due to the pandemic, most businesses (and households) face challenges which affect every part of their day-to-day lives.  Which means they are being forced to adjust their budgets, while trying to navigate uncharted waters as they review costs for the new fiscal year.

This online course introduces you to the basic knowledge necessary for proper cost control, and builds on that knowledge.  Delegates will learn practical cost control skills, to enable them to meet their management’s expectations, by consistently delivering operational objectives, while achieving financial performance goals.

This online course is very interactive, so there are no long periods of dry lectures.  Budgeting and cost control is explained in easy-to-understand language, and then reinforced with practical exercises and activities.
