About this paper
Being bound to a traditional, 12-month budget can create problems for organizations, problems such as an underutilized staff, inefficient use of resources and a lack of flexibility when economic circumstances change. Employing a 90-day budget based on processes and making better use of scenario planning and forecasting can make a difference. That is the commitment of this paper: to provide a catalyst for change and a road map for achievement to the financial planning and analysis manager who wants to shake up the status quo and get his or her team engaged at the high level of value they are capable of.
