Cost Reduction & Efficiency

As many businesses seek to find a new path in the ‘new normal’, reviewing and resetting the cost base is a clear priority.

Cost reduction and efficiency

Whether driven by trading decline, cash preservation or performance improvement motivations, organisations of all sizes are now reviewing and resetting their cost base.

Our approach seeks to help businesses deliver sustainable savings whilst retaining core operational resilience. We look beyond discretionary spend controls and explore all forms of direct and indirect costs.

Tackling costs from all angles

To generate a step change in cost reduction, businesses need to go beyond a simple review of line items and undertaking a ‘salami-slicing’ approach. This approach can often serve to demotivate employees as well as create a visible decline in customer satisfaction. Perhaps most importantly, this incremental method doesn’t tend to generate very much in the way of meaningful or lasting savings.

Management instead need to assess how all costs can be controlled or minimised through taking a more holistic approach. This can include making rapid changes in working procedures, finding and applying best practice techniques and by embedding a positive shift in corporate culture that maximises efficiency whilst preserving value.

  • Push beyond incremental ‘salami-slicing’ to achieve a step change.
  • Identify the fastest and/or most practical approach to implement improvements whilst achieving anticipated benefits.
