Introduction to Performance-Based Budgeting Concepts


In this course, you will learn a proven ten-step approach to integrate your budget and performance planning processes and help alleviate program resourcing issues.


Planning from the top down; executing from the bottom up

A critical factor in managing successful programs is estimating, budgeting, and obtaining the resources sufficient to achieve strategic aims. As a program manager, one of your responsibilities is to estimate the resources required to achieve program outcomes and obtain them through the budgeting process. To estimate resources accurately, you will need a clear understanding of your program (e.g., outcomes, tasks, timing, resources, etc.), and you will need to justify the resulting budget request to stakeholders. What if you could link resource requirements directly to performance (i.e., a performance-based budget), demonstrating how specific outcomes can be achieved with a given set of resources?
