Overview

Increasing business competition is compelling managers not only to
develop realistic and achievable strategies but also to analyze goals in
financial terms and to evaluate performance. But where do you, as a
manager, learn about the key methods and techniques of strategic cost
analysis?
This text explains in simple language the methods and techniques of cost
analysis that can be applied strategically at any level in an organization—be
it manufacturing, service, or the nonprofit sector. Since the interaction
of the organization’s activities, the influences of the external world, and
your responsibilities as a manager need to be captured in financial terms
to help plan, control, and make decisions, this book is what you’ll need
in today’s world.
Inside you will learn just how to answer the four questions:
• What did it cost?
• What should it have cost?
• How can we improve?
• What is our next strategic move?
