Budget time is here, but how much will you get?

When training managers say they are finding it hard to get the budget they want, that's a symptom. The problem is that the person allocating the budget hasn't bought off on the fact that the requested expenditure is aligned to business imperatives. Make sure the line of business managers for whom you're creating value know what you're showing in your budget submission. Make sure that any continuing operations for which you have responsibility are clearly identified — and, if it's appropriate, try to get them de-committed if they're past their sell-by date. Show in your budget submission the training projects or initiatives that you've excluded this year.
