primary financial goal of any business must be increase economic value
over time and add to shareholder wealth. Experts generally agree that
there are four ways to do this:
1. Reduce operating costs and expenses, without adding to capital employed
2. Undertake all capital investments where increased net operating income exceeds the cost of capital
3. Discontinue operation where savings in the cost of capital employed exceed any net operating income
4. Restructure the financing (ie, debt and equity) structure of the enterprise

trends and other external forces beyond the control of hotel management
can often put pressure on our ability to deliver revenues. This, in
turn, generates a "Flow Through" impact to profitability. In order to
deliver the established profit targets, particularly when we are
experiencing revenue shortfalls, we must cotiuallyexamie our operations
to ensure that costs and expenses are well controlled and reduced as
much as possible.

The tactical cost and
expenses management process should be participative in nature.
Department heads and staff must be actively involved. In this way, each
department will have ownership of their savings targets and the process
will be much more than an accounting exercise.
