Abstract:
For this study, CFO Research Services surveyed senior finance executives at midsize companies on their plans, priorities, and challenges for general and administrative (G&A) cost management over the next year. The results of our survey show that companies tend to be much less well-equipped to manage G&A costs than they are to manage direct costs. But the finance executives who participated in this study identify a connection between better G&A cost management and better-funded, more secure businesses, and they look forward to moving into the next period of growth with organizations that are leaner, less wasteful, and more competitive than ever.
