All of us, at one time or another, have had to deal with either preparing or following a budget. In fact, many households manage their financial affairs through a budget. Businesses do the same thing through what is known as capital budgeting.

The process of capital budgeting is vital to any responsible, well managed business. If that business is public and owned by public shareholders, the budgeting process becomes more crucial, since shareholders can hold management accountable for accepting unprofitable projects that can have the effect of destroying shareholder value.
