think that they will be personally targeted. However, cost reduction is not only about laying
off employees. In this course, we will explore all the different strategies for the organization
to reduce its costs starting with increasing productivity, then cutting costs everywhere
in the organization. In addition, this course will cover the time value of money and
the difference between cash and income as these two topics are important for managers
