At a time of increasing government austerity, it is vital that managers and leaders within health and social care organisations have a critical understanding of good planning and budgeting skills. This handbook will guide managers through the complex area of the planning process and includes sections on organisational aspects of planning, completing evaluation forms and analysis and strategic goal-setting. The Author then looks at effective budgeting skills including year-end forecasting, profiling and efficiency.
