Strategic Cost Management
- Cost reduction is usually conducted as a reactive, short term activity, not a proactive business philosophy. It is seen as a panacea for external pressures like a recession, stiff competition and dipping sales graphs. Very often, this result in companies compromising the long term strategic advantages they enjoy.
- Strategic Cost Management (SCM), on the other hand, is the managerial use of cost information explicitly directed at business strategy formulation, implementation and control. The Happy Tree Consulting encompasses all facets of a company’s operations and utilises various management tools for effective SCM framework.
