Cost management and profitability management

Profitability management - systematically or every year again?

Cost management is one of the supreme disciplines of management and controlling? In spite of all the wise treatises, many companies always find it opportune to take a drastic course of treatment or a cost-cutting project, in which all departments are then asked to make contributions or even to cut costs by a lump sum of x%. It is clear to everyone in the company that this approach cannot make sense - and everyone is also aware that political behaviour forces this approach. The alternative emergency nail is so-called benchmarking - in order to work out inefficiencies in an external comparison. This process, too, can quickly be called into question, since the incomparable is to be compared with the incomparable.

Our Performance Management Tool MEASURE

The interactive toolbox for your performance management


Our Performance Management Tool MEASURE

Key figures and cockpits - these management instruments have become an established part of management at all levels of the company. However, practical experience shows challenges again and again, both in the introduction and in the pragmatic and successful use in day-to-day business operations. Cockpits are only alive when they are used: Especially when it is important to store the findings from commented key figures with suitable measures and to implement them successfully. Especially today, it is important to adapt KPIs to the relevant control topics of the business - a natural contradiction to a programmed IT solution. MEASURE therefore provides an interactive toolbox: cockpit, commentary and measure tracking can be flexibly adapted to any decision situation.
