Myths and realities of zero-based budgeting
Atlanta , August 3

May 23, 2018 @ 12:00 am PDT

Thursday | August 3 | Atlanta, GA

Business leaders today are challenged to identify the most cost-effective methods to deliver their activities, programs, and levels of service, while eliminating extraneous expenses that are not aligned with strategy.

With improvements in technology, innovative finance leaders at companies across the globe are bringing back a decades-old methodology, zero-based budgeting (ZBB), to help the business meet this challenge successfully. However, due to a few pre-conceived misconceptions about the complexity of ZBB, many organizations still feel daunted by the idea and often embark on limited-scope, limited-impact projects.

Join Anaplan on August 3 in Atlanta at one of our breakfast briefings to learn more about ZBB. Executives from McKinsey & Company will discuss the myths that are inhibiting ZBB projects from getting started, as well as present the realities of ZBB success based on their experience with enabling the methodology in global companies across many indistries.
