In 1998, 33 mainly European organizations formed a group named Beyond Budgeting Round Table (BBRT), a part of the CAM-I non-profit research consortium. The BBRT performed research into alternatives to the budgeting process. The task of the group was to find organizations that had abandoned budgeting, visit those organizations, and report their findings to the BBRT members by way of case studies and presentations. In this way, the group gradually developed a model for organizations to work without budgets.

The BBRT website gives a description of the so-called BBRT-model and also gives the results of
a world-wide survey into the benefits of beyond budgeting.
