191: How to Understand and Manage Your Input Costs w/ Jimmy Ankleseria

By July 2, 2018 January 4th, 2019 No Comments

Back in 2016, I interviewed Jimmy Ankleseria over the course of two podcasts, on the topic of strategic cost management. They were very popular at the time, and contain a number of timeless insights into how we can be more strategic about understanding and managing the input costs of the products and services we buy.

With today being a holiday week here in the US, I have combined the original two shows – which clocked in at over 2 hours – into a single 40-minute episode.

Listen in to hear Jimmy share ideas of how to build cost models for both products and services, and then his approach for partnering with your supplier to manage total cost once the contract is signed.
