"I finally got to reading your book on Rolling Forecasts this weekend. This is a very , very good blueprint for rolling forecasts. I’m going to have my whole team read it."

John Stretch is the author of three books:

“Managing with rolling forecasts”
“Managing with rolling forecasts”

95 pages of text, diagrams and illustrative examples. To view contents and introduction

The idea of budgeting for a year ahead was developed in a time of stable markets, static costs, and predictable inflation.

Fixed plan business models can’t be used to run businesses in today's rapidly changing world. In consequence, some leading organisations have abandoned budgets and changed to rolling forecasts to inspire and lead their organisations to better performance.

Rolling forecasts direct management’s attention towards the future, and ensure that planning is ongoing, as opposed to an annual exercise. Finance departments are also rethinking their role and contribution, and how they add value.


“Strategy In Action”

“Strategy In Action”

This publication is based on years of information gathered from observing what organisations - mainly South African - actually do during the strategy process.

Managers know that business success does not come about by accident. Rather, success comes from a careful assessment of market opportunities, creative development of products and services, and implementation of a better business model.

The publication is ideal for anyone in management who is responsible for drawing up and implementing business strategies and business plans, also those who are about to be promoted into senior line and staff positions who want to broaden their understanding of general management and those starting or already running their own business.
