Cost Management Specialists 

improve financial results against agreed baselines

Cost Management Specialists add value when:

  • Results flat line or decreasing revenue and/or profit is below reasonable expectation
  • Target costing or better cost management is required to be price competitive
  • Growth targets are not realised despite a strategic plan and best intentions
  • Negative cashflow increases the danger of receivership
  • ‘Gut feel’ is no longer meeting clients needs and market share is threatened
  • Silos within your business undermine client value & add unnecessary cost
  • Failed change management efforts reduce staff confidence and competitiveness
  • Cross functional capability needs to be optimised
  • The ‘invisible needs to be visible’ & the ‘impossible needs to be possible’
