Last year you thoughtfully constructed a budget. You painstakingly evaluated your projected income and expenses. You pored over your cash flow projections. You wiled away the hours getting the best snapshot you could of your business in the year to come.
Well, the 4th quarter is here. How did last year’s budget fair? How often did you revisit it? Did you keep it up-to-date?
If you’re like most companies, you probably haven’t touched your budget since you constructed it. Or perhaps you’ve occasionally looked at it to see how you’re doing on your budget vs. actual.
