What is Strategic Cost Management?

Strategic cost management is the process that aims to strengthen a company’s strategic position by carefully controlling costs according to the company’s broader objectives. The practice requires separating the costs that help build a company’s strategic position from other costs that may weaken it, then reducing the latter category.

This approach can provide a sustainable competitive edge by combining cost information with decision making. Learn more about the GEP’s strategic cost management strategy solutions.
