These modules will be most effective when accessed by organisations that have completed the Organisational Development Toolkit and have developed a Capability Development Plan (Tool C).

To help you identify the modules relevant to your organisation, the Business Development Areas from the Capability Development Plan (Tool C) are indicated at the start of each module.

Module 1 - Costing, Pricing and Budgeting

Presented by Linda Hayes, Corporate Synergies Australia

Business Development Areas

4. Financial Sustainability

7. Information, Knowledge and Process Management

Overview

In this module, Linda Hayes discusses the process of costing, pricing and budgeting for community service organisations.

Costing involves detailed identification, categorisation, measurement and valuation of all resource inputs exchanged or sacrificed to achieve an organisational service, program or activity outcome.

Pricing is very different from costing. Organisations have the majority of influence in decisions determining their costs but have less influence in decisions determining the price clients are prepared to pay for a particular service outcome.

At the core of budgeting is stakeholder agreement on exactly how limited, valuable resources are planned to be used to achieve strategic and operational plans.
