A use-it-or-lose-it budget scenario encourages any leader with budget responsibility to spend all of this fiscal year’s budget on activities that should start this year, even if they are completed in the next fiscal year.
In our guide to maximizing the impact of a UIOLI budget strategy, we recommend using UIOLI funds to engage external partners who:
- Have a proven track record
- Can quickly respond with thinking on whatever the future engagement is
- Are flexible enough to adapt the engagement as conditions change in the coming fiscal year
Brainzooming fulfills all three criteria, providing you confidence that we can:
- Demonstrate comparable work and case studies so that you have a sense of the approach and outcomes
- Readily envision an engagement that addresses your varied needs and expectations
- Easily adapt our original approach as future conditions necessitate
Quick response, flexibility, and productive results are what Brainzooming does all the time.
