I wonder how closely many companies and organizations follow their budgets. There have been so many budget cuts lately, that I have a hard time understanding how it can get that far out of hand.
I recently attended a school board meeting where they were discussing the amount of money that needed to be cut from their budget. There is no way they could have been that far behind in just one year.
This had to be from more than one year of going over budget. Either they didn't have a very good budget planner, or they didn't do a good job of following the plan.
It was frustrating to see how many good programs were going to be cut and how many people were losing their job because of it.
