Training - OBZ Zero Base Budget

Análise de mercado


The “Zero Base Budgeting” (ZBB) or Zero Base Budgeting (OBZ) is an instrument for identifying and evaluating the company's activities, collaborating with the administration in the budget decision-making process.

Through OBZ, the company will not only carry out a budget projection added to the growth rates, which are often defined at random. In this process, the amounts considered significant must be subject to a detailed analysis, in which case they must be fully justified.

The tool proposes a thorough analysis of the strategic priorities of the business and focus on the resources really needed to carry them out. By applying this concept, companies will have the opportunity to identify opportunities to improve their results through cost reduction processes, in addition to promoting a greater level of efficiency in their operations.
