Cost-reduction initiatives are being undertaken by most organizations globally, yet failure rates remain relatively high. What are common cost management trends facing senior executives across industries, and how does digital transformation factor into the equation? We’ll discuss:

  • The role of digital technologies, such as automation, cloud, and cognitive computing, in driving more sustainable margin improvement, and creating uncertainty.
  • Common roadblocks to effective cost management that companies are facing and steps to overcome them.
  • How finance executives can leverage cost reduction as a proxy for broader finance transformation.

Participants will explore results of Deloitte’s second Global Cost Survey and insights into leading margin improvement practices.
