How does an Executive Board approve a budget with so many competing priorities for the same pool of money? How do you prove security is worth the investment when your function is considered overhead, not a profit center? Find out what it takes to build a budget that will get approved by your Board and Executive Staff. We will help you determine what it is that your Board and Executive team want, and in what format, including the process for getting inserted properly into the approval cycle, and the focus your Board is seeking. We will identify what you need, how you go about collecting it, preparing for the best chance of approval, and presenting it to the Executives. We will review what to include in the presentation, what to leave out, and how you deliver a budget presentation for successful results. We will take you to the starting line, through the course, and to the finish line, including your next steps AFTER the presentation.
We will leave you with an actionable document you can apply to your own budget and organization, with verbiage and a template to get you started.
