ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the reaction of businesses around the world to the existing economic climate. He asserts that businesses are all concerned with performance and cost. He notes that more organisations are moving towards better cost identification and they want to examine their costs of service, of production, of staffing and of products. He asserts that more and more businesses across all industry sectors are being compelled to identify the location of capacities and the limitations of capacities. He discusses the importance of vital standards and notes that they are making a comeback on businesses.
