Costing for Decision Making

Importance of the Workshop

Organizations make many business decisions based on the cost of products. How the cost of a product offering is determined could take varied forms. If the appropriate cost is not determined, this could lead to wrong decisions – rejecting a profitable product, or even accepting an unprofitable product. Thus determining the appropriate cost for specific decision types, would be of utmost importance. Besides, once the cost behavior is known, cost reduction efforts can be focused.
