AMA's Budgeting Workshop

Learn budget planning skills and see how your managerial decisions translate into dollars and cents!

Like it or not, the budget is the yardstick that top management uses to measure your actual performance. And in today’s tough and highly unpredictable economy, the manager who knows budget planning and how to apply it effectively wins hands down over the one who doesn’t.

So, if you’re a new manager who’s “just a little nervous” about budget planning…or an experienced one who wants to get a lot more out of the yearly chore…or if you just want to “hold your own” with financial managers, this seminar is for you!
