"Workshop on Strategic Cost Management
Date: 12, 13 Sept 2008 Venue: JW Marriott, Juhu, MUMBAI
Date: 19, 20 Sept 2008 Venue: TAJ Westend, Bangalore

In a competitive environment, managers have little control over price, which is external to the firm. Price is determined by the market forces, primarily by competition from other firms manufacturing similar products and competition from substitutes. Managers can manage costs, which are, to an extent, internal to the firm. But to create value, managers must understand market dynamics and the interplay of price and costs.

Contemporary cost management models consider the trade off between price and costs. This programme aims to provide an understanding of contemporary cost management techniques. In addition, this programme will help managers to develop skills for the use of cost information for decision making.
