WHETHER used to fund growth plans or support a distressed balance sheet, access to finance is the lifeblood of business. As companies have faced severe funding challenges in recent years there has been a growing recognition of the importance of the ties between a company's finance director and its main relationship bank.

While the economy has begun to show signs of recovery access to finance has remained scarce, placing stress on traditional banking relationships and supporting the growth of alternative sources of funding.

Financial Director and Manchester Business School are conducting a Relationship Banking Survey, which should take around ten minutes to complete, to find out how finance directors rate the performance of their main banking partners.

To have your say and gain an insight into the main causes of stress between your peers and their main banking partners, and have the chance to win an iPad, simply click here or copy and paste the following link into your internet browser.

Why budgeting fails: One management system is not enough

If budgeting is to have any value at all, it needs a radical overhaul.

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.
