It provides learners with an opportunity to better understand the planning drivers and key assumptions that underpin budget development and the key tools to be applied in allocating, monitoring, managing and forecasting budget outcomes. It includes understanding the alternative approaches to budgeting and budget models, linking planning to budgeting, and identifying the planning variables and assumptions that need to be documented in order to set the budget.
