Workshop on Activity Based Management at Pune, India

Indian industry, notwithstanding its growth projection, continues to face an uphill battle to identify the ‘real’ opportunities for growth amidst reduced consumer confidence and a customer population that is prone to churn and attrition. Many Indian enterprises, having invested heavily in good times are now finding it very difficult to sustain the cost structures with reduced margins. While the economic crisis will have serious impact on the growth and profitability of the companies, the crisis offers an excellent opportunity for companies to transform themselves towards long term profitable growth and increased stakeholder value. Not surprisingly several leading firms in India have started comprehensive transformation programs. The question though is – what should be the goal of such transformation programs? Should they focus on growth or profitability? Wouldn’t cutting costs offer immediate return of profits? Should more customers be acquired? Do more customer means more revenue and importantly more profits? While these are very common questions that the executives driving these transformation programs address, the reality behind these transformation programs is that often companies undertake these programs on “Gut feel” rather than basing them on “complete and consistent facts”.
To improve financial performance is a high priority in most organizations today. But to find accurate information on costs and profits for decision-making can be difficult. The problem is that traditional accounting systems were developed mainly for external reporting purposes. As a result, these systems often provide inaccurate and misleading information about costs and profitability. What you need is a system that will enable you to accurately measure costs and profitability for products, services, customers, and processes. It should also reveal the root causes of a certain cost or profitability level, enabling you to make the right decisions and take action to improve financial performance. What you need is Activity-Based Costing and Management. An unmatched concept that enables you to make better strategic and operational decisions to increase profitability, manage costs, and improve operational efficiency.
With ABC/M you can:
– Identify the most and least profitable products, services, customers, or sales Channels
– Accurately determine true costs for products and services
