Process map for forecastingThe budget meeting

Even in large, wealthy corporations, very few senior leaders have discretionary funds. The plan will unfold within the budget, and folks always say "you cannot predict tomorrow." A key to successful strategy formulation is being flexible and clearly assigning responsibilities.


  • How long until the strategy pays for itself?
  • How and how often will we get feedback on the plans progress?
  • Is the plan at the right level of detail?
  • How much contingency funding needs to be set aside?


  • Are the goals explicit, clear?
  • Has the responsibility and accountability been delegated?
  • Does the strategy align with our incentive system?
  • Have the key players committed to the plan "eyeball to eyeball?"
