This discussion highlights the experiences of three universities that recently implemented new budget models. Each panelist explains converting his or her institution’s new Responsibility Centered Management budget model from a spreadsheet to a university-wide planning tool. Speakers will share how they developed new planning processes, assigned new roles and responsibilities, created new reporting and training tools, established new shared governance structures. Panelists will also discuss unexpected challenges related to policies, timelines, training, communications, and emerging needs. Following the facilitated discussion, audience questions will be encouraged.
