Why Attend This Training Course?
Organizations throughout the public and private sectors face the imperative to improve support for operations, reduce costs, and improve efficiency. When efforts to do so are not aligned with business objectives, organizations end up spending billions of dollars on initiatives with only short-term benefits. The training course weighs the benefits and downsides of short-term cost reduction vs. strategic cost optimization programs and offers a four-level framework for prioritizing initiatives that enables departments to better support the business, both today and for the future. It also provides a framework that can help CIOs prioritize cost optimization initiatives by considering not only the potential cost savings, but also other benefits, such as time requirements, degree of organizational and technical risk, impact on customers and investment required.
