This course is most relevant now because Nigeria at present is a truly tough economy, an environment where cost efficiency must simply be a matter of common sense. The whole organization and all levels of management should master it.

Generating substantial revenue from pre-existing business elements as well as understanding competitive cost reduction is now a viable strategy. Cutting costs and managing margins is generally a more predictable and controllable way to maximize business profits than growing sales, particularly in this depressed economy.

Every naira saved from cost goes directly to the bottom line. Costs directly linked to product quality, excellent customer service, or your defined competitive edge is strategic.

Whatever fails to conform to the above stands to be considered an overhead?
