Description

A combination of factors including slow (or negative) economic growth, intensified cross-border competition, rapidly changing and more costly technological developments, have provoked managers to look hard at ways of further containing costs. As managers brace themselves for yet another round of downsizing and cutbacks they are finding that many of the cutting measures they have taken in the past are not proving to be a long-term solution to the problems faced. Cost Control: A Strategic Guide will help managers to recognize the deficiencies inherent in the corporate budget process and show how fresh approaches to methods of controlling overheads can provide long-lasting practical solutions. In this highly pragmatic book Derek Doyle offers advice on: * Getting over reverence to the past in budgeting * The value of zero-based activity appraisal * Alternative ways on operating in-house services * Focusing on efficiency rather than effectiveness * Devising a revised organisational budgeting culture * Measuring and valuing overheads * Cost recovery. Complete with checklists and advice on the advantages and disadvantages of each method of cost management this book will provide the manager of the uncertain 1990s with an invaluable toolkit for business survival.show more
