Re: Creative ways to display or discuss annual budget?

At Liberty Village (Libertytown, MD) for several years we have projected the spreadsheet on a screen. It includes last year's budget, the proposed budget and the final budget across the screen. We do it line by line from there. Teams submit their budget requests in advance. The bottom line is setting the dues level for the year. This seems to work much better than paper copies of a spreadsheet, which we used to do, since the values are updated dynamically in the spreadsheet for all to see.

Hi!  I'm looking for ideas for a creative way to have a budget discussion.  Our 
typical way to discuss the budget is to go line by line from top to bottom, in 
a speadsheet that shows the proposed amount, the amount budgeted last year, and 
the amount spent so far this year.  I think this past year we got really wild 
and went bottom to top.  Wooohooooo!  :)
I'd like to shake it up this year and try some other techniques -- different 
ways to present the information, different ways to lead the discussion.
Any ideas??
