Why Attend

Cost management is an important topic in accounting and finance. Its effects stretch to all departments and impact the organization's financial position. Cost management covers a lot of cost concepts like job and batch orders  and absorption costing. The pinnacle of any cost management training is activity-based costing which helps in making better decisions. Among these decisions are whether to drop or keep a product, make or buy, and replace or keep a piece of equipment. Moreover, cost management includes allocating costs of service departments internally. Also covered in this course are cost estimations and transfer pricing. The course will close with evaluating performance and a brief discussion on the balanced scorecard and managing scarce resources.
