Driving Down Cost: How to Manage and Cut Costs--Intelligently by Andrew Wileman

With chaos in the markets and a worldwide recession on the horizon, Driving Down Cost: How to Manage and Cut Costs- Intelligently could not be timelier. Cost management is not just for downturns; it should be practiced at all times. Further, it's not an issue that concerns only CEOs and those involved in the behind-the-scenes functions of finance, production control and customer call centers-cost management is an important issue for every manager and executive, at every level in every company, large or small, public or private. Driving Down Cost is the first accessible and practical book to address cost management for managers across the board. Drawing on over twenty-five years of consultancy experience from over fifty international, large scale one-time cost reduction projects, Andrew Wileman provides a toolkit filled with key ideas and strategies for analyzing cost management, including procuring and managing accounts, which is something that is relevant to both private and public sector organizations. He includes practical techniques for implementing cost reduction programs and real-life, international case studies, not only discussing the clevel ways to avoid costs but also the smart, innovative ways to cut them. This is essential reading for those looking to manage cost effectively and see their businesses safely through the rough waters of our current economy.
