TS HAS ALWAYS loved a good party. It's something of a weakness of ours.

In particular, TS is keen on parties with a live band and free drinks, and so it was with great pleasure we accepted an invitation from PwC to attend its summer party at its offices in More London Place.

It was with surprise, though, that TS found what appeared to be a bouncer running a one-in, one out policy at the entrance to its upstairs glass-enased 'penthouse' where an excellent soul band was playing, like some sort of exclusive night club.

Mahiki it was not, but happily, there was only a short wait to gain entrance, TS's attire was sharp enough and with names on the list, there was no eye-watering entry fee.

In today's dynamic marketplace, budgeting can no longer serve as a company's only management system; it must integrate with and support dedicated strategy management systems, process improvement systems, and the like. In this paper, Professor Peter Horvath and Dr Ralf Sauter present what's wrong with the current approach to budgeting and how to fix it.
