It's the end of the financial year again. For some, it is a time of celebration, for many it is a sobering experience. It is a time when many organisations have to come to terms with the consequences of decisions made a year ago on little or imperfect information. It is also a time of year when budgets and goals are set for the following year, where hard decisions are often made.
