  • Focus on business processes that significantly impact cost
  • Understanding the full procurement and decision making processes in the company
  • Customized TCO model(s)

The Total Cost of Ownership model, when created and implemented properly gives everyone in the company the ability to fully understand the primary cost drivers inside the company for procured products, components and systems and for the cost of products and services the company sells. They will understand how these cost drivers affect profitability and identify hidden costs that haven’t been focused on in the past. At the end of this workshop, a company will have customized the appropriate TCO model(s) and have an implementation plan that will clearly articulate how TCO will be introduced, implemented and managed inside the company.
