Today companies are trying to make the most of every dollar to increase their competitive edge. Even a small decrease in overhead costs or increase in productivity can make big difference. Lisa and Brenda decompose a budget for developing a 30-day proposal and a 10-day proposal for small, medium, and large companies and provide recommendations for decreasing costs, while also streamlining workflow, effectively using automation, and working smarter not harder.
They also describe how they implement management best practices like Agile, Information Technology Infrastructure Library® (ITIL), and Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK), and commonly used tools and technology to generate cost savings.
Doing more with less does not mean longer hours for less pay, but rather leverages continuous process improvement, teamwork, creativity, and ongoing training to result in long-term savings. Lisa and Brenda share best practices for cost savings.
