Business Cost Management (BCM) already has a presence in sixteen countries worldwide, and is now developing a relationship with the ultimate low-cost economy, China.
This new development began when BCM led a seminar of industry leading specialists in Shanghai, China, last November 19th-20th. Because of the success of that seminar, the company has been asked to return to lead another on April 23rd-24th. BCM director and lead tutor, John Mac Namara, looks forward to building a strong presence in China. "I am delighted that BCM was chosen to lead this seminar. BCM has been at the forefront of cost management development for the last 15 years and it is good to see this recognized," he said.
The November seminar, “Supply Side Cost Reduction Techniques,” aimed to help the businesses in attendance reduce their cost base without major staffing and structural changes. It was attended by business managers from a wide range of industry leaders, including Coca-Cola (China), Grenland Group ASA Shanghai Representative Office, and Valspar.
The seminars are organised by Innovation Resource China, an organisation that helps businesses to develop in the Asia Pacific region. It sources business consultants from across the world to help industry in China innovate and prosper. The April seminar will have higher-level attendees, with general managers of a new range of companies in China present to get BCM’s cost-cutting assistance. Franchising has been crucial to the BCM model and has helped the company build a presence across the world.
It is a model that Mac Namara sees as potentially useful to a wide range of other companies. “There’s a lot of companies out there that could employ a franchise model with great success," he says. “These companies have business models, formulae if you will, which might easily be applied elsewhere. And if they are applied in different markets there is no issue for the company in relation to increased competition.”
