MDP on "Building Sustainable Operations Strategy for Cost Optimization"

Date : January 24 & 25, 2020


Cost Optimization is the order of the day for any enterprise to flourish and prosper.
Delivering strategic change and putting in place the operational capabilities needed to deliver it have always been difficult. Yet, we now have both the compelling drivers and the practical means to make strategic cost reduction realizable and transformational. “Cost optimization in the age of digital business means that organizations use a mix of IT and business cost optimization for increased business performance through wise technology investments,” says John Roberts, research vice president and distinguished analyst with Gartner’s CIO and Executive Leadership team.

“The key to effective enterprise cost optimization is to have proactive processes in place as part of business and technology strategy development to continually explore new opportunities.” The purpose of this program is to foresee or predict as many challenges and problems as possible; and to plan, organize and control the activities to drive down operational cost.

This program will equip participants with hands-on experience on the application of optimization tools & techniques to analyze various business situations.
