Basically, the planning should rely on existing data, otherwise a strategic planning can not be implemented and understood. In most cases, in companies, planning is not just done by one person, but several people or departments are involved in the process. Often, the finance department releases the corresponding budget, so that individual departments can make a targeted planning on the individual cost centers. However, this planning process can also be different due to other structures in the company. If the subsequent detailed planning is successfully completed, the budget is generally released. Such workflows, including approvals, are more efficiently mapped in companies with intelligent planning software such as CoPlanner. This makes planning much more dynamic, more transparent, and better targeted decisions can be made.
