Analysis Of The Impact Of Operational Cost Cutting Strategies On Financial Performance [A Case Study Of Zimbabwe Alloys Chrome (Under Judicial Management)])

ABSTRACT

The research aims to analyse the impact of operational cost cutting strategies on financial

performance. A case study of Zimbabwe Alloys Chrome (under judicial management) was used

to analyse the impact of the operational cost cutting strategies implemented, determining factors

that affect the successful implementation of operational cost cutting strategies. Literature from

different scholars and authors on cost cutting was reviewed in this study. The study made use of

questionnaires and interviews to collect data from the organization. The study targeted 26 ZAC

members, a total of 22 questionnaires were distributed to ZAC staff and 18 were returned earning

82% and 3 individuals were interviewed inspiring a 100% response rate. Data was presented using

tables, graphs and analysis was made resulting in conclusions being drawn. Upon data analysis, it

was revealed that ZAC cost cutting measures positively affects the financial performance in the

long run but in the short run the financial woes will worsen before they improve. The

recommendations passed by the researcher included the improvement of current cost cutting

measures and continuation with the application of the cost cutting measures. The researcher also

recommended ZAC to implement controls so as to make sure that all current cost control

procedures and policies are adhered to, budget formulation and introduction of incentives and

bonuses for meeting budgets.
