4 Questions to Ask Before Cutting an Expense
Cutting your organization's budget to the bare bones has become essential, especially in this economy. Budget cuts should be strategic and well thought out. Before reducing, ask yourself these simple questions to avoid weakening your organization by taking away a valuable resource.
1. Will you reduce your ability to compete effectively?
2. Will you reduce the quality of your product or service?
3. Will you reduce your client’s experience with your organization?
4. Will you reduce the good will that you have worked so hard to create?
If the answer is YES to any of these questions, take a step back and reconsider your decision. If you answered NO to all the questions then you can most likely cut the expense without huge repercussions.
