Fundamental Cost Reduction

From Paradox to Fundamental Growth

Executive Briefings is a series published by manufacturship® designed to share insights, provoke discussion, and explore solutions to the critical areas of concern to the business leaders of today. These leaders are continually working to inspire, enable, and lead their teams to capitalise on the opportunities of the post GFC economy whilst ensuring that risk is mitigated and reduced.

Every issue tackles a major challenge facing corporations and their executives, defines the problems encountered as they rise to the challenge, and shares insights and practical applications across industries and related research. Few can doubt the speed and complexity of changes in the business environment that organisations face if they are to be successful through the “teen” years of the 21st century.

The emerging issues of the 90’s and 00’s are well and truly established and matured in many areas. Industry convergence, global sourcing, electronic commerce, worldwide alliances, virtual organisations, corporate governance and citizenship are no longer the new wave, but are developed and evolving into a 2.0 level of maturity and reinvention.

More importantly than ever are the fundamentals of business, developing the capability and mastery of the skills of leadership, management, financial  success, strategy, and outstanding implementation by executive conversant in change and culture to better sustain their interventions in this ‘Asian Century’.

Fundamental Cost Reduction is one of the 12 Core Projects of the manufacturship® curriculum. You can obtain more information about our work by downloading the whitepaper available here.

We encourage you to write or call us with your questions, observations, and suggestions.
