Advanced Budgeting Workshop' is the second level course in budgeting after 'Effective Budgeting and Cost Control' course. It goes beyond the theory of budgeting as a concept to cover specific steps to make the budget a value-added process in the organization.

Several Microsoft Excel tools are used throughout this course to make it practical and to provide participants with the skills needed to apply these tools in their organization immediately. Such tools include 'what-if' analysis and the 'solver', among many others.
