I am looking for some reference material on budgeting and forecasting for an SaaS-type business. Can someone please recommend a good book or blog article they found helpful in managing their own company? It would be especially useful to see some industry-relevant rules of thumb.
If you do not feel a budgeting process is necessary to successful operation of your business then please comment on what process you find useful when planning for expansion or calculating operating cash requirements. For example how do you answer questions like "can I afford to hire a new employee" or "how many customers do I need in order to break even"?
