In many organizations, margins are under pressure from all angles. Intensifying competition, supplier consolidation, rising development and operating costs, and volatile input prices are just a few examples. On top of operating pressures, new growth avenues demand capital as well. To stay financially viable and support the investments required to compete, many leaders are looking for ways to reduce operating costs.
Most organizations have already worked to find efficiencies and strip out waste. Too often, however, such efforts are incremental. Changes at the margin won’t deliver the profitability demanded in today’s markets. Meaningfully transforming cost control efforts requires realigning expenditure, investment, products, and processes with stakeholder needs. To do that, leaders need better data and insights, engagement and alignment throughout the organization, and a willingness to think differently about their business model.
