Increasing sales is often a top priority for most businesses. But, decreasing costs and reducing waste tends to only come into focus when and organization is grappling with declining sales.

Although it makes sense to try and cut back on costs during difficult trading period, you have to wonder why companies don’t maximize profitability even when sales are booming. It’s not difficult to come to the conclusion that even great businesses tend to be rather inefficient.

In this certificate program, we introduce the work practices associated with the management of productivity and profitability. This includes providing a practical toolkit and a range of techniques that can be deployed to reduce costs, increase revenue, increase productivity and increase efficiency. It also includes an understanding of how to assess an organization’s profitability, deliver growth for the bottom line and how to plan and manage change.
