Budget decisions are based strictly on the needs of the business and investment opportunities presented. In this report, IBB creator Dean Meyer explores the Investment-Based Budgeting process. He identifies its advantages, how it works, the steps in the process, and discusses how IBB differs from the traditional budget process.
