        It is civilized study it is a generally accepted more that main tools of modern management is budget. Jesses Burke (1999) he is head of Maxwell graduate school of citizenship and public affair in Syracuse university write on the evaluation of modern budgeting. In his opinion he stated that originally budget were seen as a modern management tool which spread as a public prose for the revenue and expenditure of the economic. With the advent of modern budgeting the private organization budgeting goes beyond that.

The key is constant review up dating of the budgets. The long range budgets on the other hands, cover generalities are not as detailed and specific as short range budget for example the budgeter is more interest in the general projected increase in sales volume. Stemming from the projector sales volume would be capital improvements. This would give management an idea of what now types of equipment new plant etc the company should be planning on acquiring. The budget being a fools of management should be flexible to give room for updating from time to time. Management must be ready to meet actual demands and changes not withstanding the budgets.

        An important consideration in the preparation of the budgets is that management should not set unrealistic and unattainable goals. The more the goals are realistically set, the more the budgets will be an aid in establishing efficiency and answering maximum profit.

        More over, financial constraints deprived the research ability to visit many companies be ought to visit in gather all the data needed different small scale industries so all this work will not just proved irrelevant at the end of completion of research. Another problem is the secrecy being attached to the information by the company. The has consequent adverse affect on the realization of information and data needed for the study. The company may not want to disclose the secret that wants to get his information about the project will be involved.
