Budget process optimization

Budget process optimization

Objective

1
To identify drivers within the process of developing budget information and information systems
2
To cut analysis time and reduce time spent on producing/checking figures for the management control function

Approach

Identification of time-consuming operations

1Identification of dysfunctional aspects
  • Redundant and/or manual tasks
  • Underutilization of the information system
  • First-level checks
2Identification of optimization drivers
  • Profiles and capacities
  • Automatic checks

Target scenarios
