When looking to improve the financial performance in your organization, there are two main routes. One is by enhancing value in some form to increase revenue. The other is to figure out ways to cut costs. Frequently, organizations focus solely on increasing value and lose sight of what can be done to cut costs. When reducing costs, your organization ends up with more money in their pocket, which provides the same effect as increasing revenue.

Cutting costs is so valuable certain companies put a high priority on it through practices such as Six Sigma. Six Sigma alone has reduced labor costs in the billions for large organizations such as Toyota, General Electric, Cummins, IBM, and more. Cutting costs can be both obvious as well as not abundantly clear.
