Constructing and controlling budgets

Media Type - DVD
Author - John Cleese and John Bird.

The owner of a small manufacturing business finds himself in a typical predicament: sales are up 50 per cent on the previous year but profits are down.

His more knowledgeable friend is able to explain that the increase, and the extra expenditure it incurred, were not previewed in the original budget - indeed, the budget appears to have been ignored altogether. He explains where the owner went wrong and why his working goals cannot be separated from financial realities.
