Summary

"Traditional cost cutting has always had a backward focus and created lots of negative reactions -- both rational and irrational. In his new book, Jan Emblemsvag introduces a new forward looking life-cycle approach to cost management. Employing foresight instead of hindsight puts the focus on processes, uncertainty and risks, and future value creation.
