Activity Based Costing

Duration of training: 2 Days

Training Delivery: Instructor-led

 This is a practical and hands on programme for managers on how cost and performance management systems can increase the profitability and performance of their organizations. It brings together knowledge and skills that modern cost management methods can provide.

The increasing demand from companies/organizations in understanding their services and products’ true cost and profitability has created a gap that the methodology of Activity-Based Costing (ABC) is helping to close, providing top management with quality data that can support their operational decisions and strategic initiatives.

The ABC methodology is being used for several strategic initiatives: to calculate the true cost and profitability per customer, product, service, sales channel, etc.; to review and align the pricing strategy; to support product-mix optimization and SKU´s rationalization; measuring capacity; processes improvement; shared services costing control; etc. For that reason ABC is a fundamental management tool for strategy execution.
