We are living in a time of transition with instability and unpredictability as a normal state. New and young generations are entering work life and new technologies creates new opportunities for financial and operational management. Yet, we continue to plan annually and to follow up how plans are kept on a yearly basis. The time and effort spent on working with the traditional budget rarely leads to sustainability, high profitability, happy employees or even creates value for shareholders. Is it possible for all organizations, or even units within an organization, to know and in advance and predict what will happen between January 1 and December 31 of each year? Is it possible that all of them have a deadline for their business on the last day of a year as the traditional budget stipulates?
 
Beyond Budgeting is a concept - a comprehensive and fundamental idea – with a set of principles based on well-known and accepted methods and models on how to manage, organize and lead organizations in times of uncertainty. The acronym VUCA - volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity - can summarize the complexity of today’s reality and the change in the environment, we are forced to accept. Globalization, market shifts, (de-)regulations and increased competition create high demands on the organization's ability to adapt. The demographic changes facing us, with lack of talents in the global market, as well as the constant technological developments, where everything becomes digitized, is challenging the requirements for any organization that try to control it with the help of a traditional budget.
