SOP Word of the Day: Budget

SOP Word of the Day: Budget

By Keith Johnson

The word "budget" refers to a numerical plan for allocating resources to a specific project or activity. The key to understanding budget this - all resources need to be understood and itemized in common terms of time and currency.

In this way, you can create algorithms and formulas that enable you to compare/contrast resources and perform analytics.

In this way you can measure progress and know if you are on schedule and truly reaching your goal, via the established budget.
