Summary of Driving Down Cost
How to Manage Costs - Intelligently
Manage your costs right and you’ll never have to go through an extreme cost-cutting frenzy.
Andrew Wileman provides a series of practical toolkits that help you achieve cuts in your cost structure to support your company’s strategic position. He also shows why cost slashing destroys brands and undermines future growth. His writing can be a bit colloquial and clunky at times, but it’s still very clear and easy to read. The book stays on point from beginning to end. Each chapter provides a list of the key ideas for each toolkit. getAbstract recommends this book to executives, CFOs, managers and others who are responsible for budgeting.
