Growth vs cost

Books of Account
Driving Down Cost
Andrew Wileman

Cost management is like golf putter

A good cost manager is an unsung hero, bemoans Andrew Wileman in Driving Down Cost. anagement books and magazines are full of articles on strategy, growth, culture, organisation, and financial engineering, but not about cost management, he frets. “You can look down Amazon’s list of bestselling business books and they’re all about leadership, core competencies, governance, innovators’ dilemmas — nothing about cutting costs.”
