All there are correct, but subtly different.

I displayed financial skills by creating the firm's budget.

says by what method you displayed your financial skills

I displayed financial skills while creating the firm's budget.

says that displaying your financial skills was something that happened while your were creating the budget.

I displayed financial skills creating the firm's budget.

is somewhere in between the other sentences. It sounds somewhat incorrect to me, but I don't know of a grammar rule it violates.
