Course overview 

Most budgetary control systems in the UK were introduced in an environment in which the predominant management style was "command and compliance" to which the once-a-year, for-a-year budget, expressed in the language of accounting, provided a compatible approach. As the rate of change in the business environment has increased, however, this approach to budgeting has come to be seen as not only inappropriate but dangerously misleading.

Budgets should flow from strategy, not constrain it. The pressures on budgetary control should be seen in the context of the trends affecting management generally, e.g. the greater emphasis on strategy, customers, devolution, co-operation and intangibles. It recognises the importance of things that cannot be measured.

Dynamic Budgetary Control ensures that opportunities for enhancing the long-term value of your business are considered properly and not evaluated on their short-term impact.
