CHAPTER ONE

1.1           BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

One of the means of measuring the performance of an organization management is its efficiency. Efficiency relates to the optimum utilization of inputs to derive the best achievable output. An efficient manager executes his responsibilities with the last resources and maximum output to accomplish the organizational goals.

An important goal at a profit oriented organization is to operate at a profit. However, if now effort to generate maximum revenue is not cost efficient, it will only be more difficult to achieve the goal. As strategies are employed to maximum returns on one hand, it is of equal importance for the management to institute conscious and methodical programmes that would assist in controlling and reducing the resources input in order the revenue will not be totally consumed by astronomical expenses.

We thus discussed the two techniques that could assist management to maximize cost namely: Cost Control and reduction techniques for the purpose of this study. We shall call them Cost Management techniques (CMS). We viewed Cost Control to be an application of costing to enable management to compare the actual cost with planned cost and to take any necessary corrective action before it is too late. Before any control can be affected, the standard or target of performance must be set against with actual cost can be measured through this method inefficiency will be revealed.
