At APQC’s 2016 Process Conference Accenture conducted a presentation on how closed-loop cost management provides full visibility on all operating spend across business units, categories and geographies to a detailed level and exploring how the money can be spent more wisely to add value and help drive growth.

Key topics covered included the following:

  • Three components that are essential for companies moving to a closed-loop cost management approach
  • Six step methodology for sustainable cost reduction
  • Overview of case studies on how leading companies are implementing sustainable cost reduction programs
