Drawing on literature from Accounting, Finance, Operations Research, Econometrics and Computer Science, Financial Planning Models considers three key aspects of financial planning: business planning as performed through a financial model of the firm, planning of the financial resources of the firm and the applications of IT. The book starts with predicting financial requirements then considers various methods of planning to establish a common method of modelling and planning which can be married to the technology of computer modelling. The text also examines the planning process and looks at model structures developed for corporate planning, budgeting and short term decision making. Issues of decision supports and innovative techniques such as executive information systems are introduced and the application of financial plans to decision making and to individual and group decision making behaviour is introduced. Financial Planning Models provides a multidisciplinary yet structured approach to the construction and use of financial planning models.
