by Debra Mervyn, Mervyn Group
Bottom line results are achieved by first understanding bottom line numbers. Unfortunately, accounting and financial reports do not accurately reflect the true costs of a product or service. When it comes to addressing the decision making and bottom line performance facing companies of all sizes and market sectors, you can learn how small to medium size businesses, just like Fortune 100 and 500 companies, have used process mapping and cost accounting to define the true cost of products or services sold, and at the same time pursue the improvements needed to significantly increase contribution margins.
