Budget and Planning Brief

Why Read This Research

Financial planning and clarity in budget management have never been more important to higher education, as institutions are under financial stress from all sides: increasing costs, enrollment pressures, continued reduced government support, and political and cultural questioning of the value of higher education. Budget and planning tools offer more robust processes and workflow, reporting and analytics capabilities, faster scenario planning, direct integration with financial and other systems, and the ability to support these processes in a sustainable way that reduces institutional risk by not relying on individuals and spreadsheets.
