RMI Power UP – Mastering the Annual Budget Process for Delivery Teams

Thanks to our sponsors:  Mavenlink       

Join us Wednesday, September 18 — 11:30 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

We timed this Power UP because we know most companies on a calendar year budget plan are gearing up for the 2020 budget process. Unfortunately, too many organizations use a more traditional budget planning process that does not fully accommodate today’s modern RM processes. To make things even more difficult, too many delivery teams remain dependent on spreadsheets to help make their budget cases to senior management and finance. From a technology point of view, this is often because their current tool is not the right fit, or, old behaviors led them to spreadsheets before exploring what their current PSA/PPM tool is really capable of. In this Power UP session, we will explore best practices in approaching the annual budgeting process including some tips on what to look for in a PSA/PPM tool and how to wind down your dependence on spreadsheets.
