activities. Therefore knowledge and awareness of costing and management accounting through the application of LEAN techniques is essential.

• Gain knowledge on how to determine how to identify the policies and processes that exist only for their self-perpetuation
• Understand how to replace, or eliminate, those processes that do not add value
• Open up opportunities for improved and streamlined processes, as well as benefitting the decision-making activity
• Optimise value-add activities that deliver a sustainable and improve bottom line


This workshop is suitable for:

• Directors and the Senior Management Team - responsible for stakeholder satisfaction & sustainability
• Accountants, Financial Managers & Controllers - needing to be on top of their game
• Business Unit Managers & Operational Audit Managers – to ensure organisational stability
• Every manager, senior manager, controller, director or executive, has a duty to manage the resources under their control in the most effective manner but often, over time, inefficiencies can creep into activities. It is therefore very important to refresh best practices and ensure that the business is functioning to its maximum capability
