Participative budgeting is an effective tool of practice of allowing managers who will be responsible for performance under a suitable budget to participate for business budgeting decisions. It ensures all concerned managerial staff are engaged in the budgeting process so that budgets are the results of team work and maximum co-ordination. The participative budget is a very important tool to overcome the human problems associated with the formulation and implementation of the budget. It leads to improve performance by promoting among operating managers staff a feeling of belongingness to the organization. Senior managers from all leading major activities should play a leading role in developing an effective budget for the organizational needs, Since this can produce more realistic targets lead to better understanding of corporate objectives and the constraints within which all organization work. As a consequence, it is hoped that personnel will be better motivated to achieve budget levels of efficiency and activity.
