Synopsis: Dr. Geigers research proposes innovative and practical responses to the cost war fought by government organizations struggling with lower budget levels. His sustained research contributions into the measurement and management of cost in government organizations promise to improve governments mission effectiveness by improving its mission efficiency.Association of Government AccountantsAs the United States moves from Cold War to Cost War, the management of cost has greatly increased in importance. In fact, the greatest threat today to the strength of the nation may be poor management of the limited remaining resources.Winning the Cost War documents a new doctrine of cost management developed from battlefield management, one of managements oldest applications. Dale Geiger defines and illustrates new ideas for everything from managerial cost accounting to analysis and accountability. Winning the Cost War has moved managerial costing from being a secondary chore to a framework for success in todays environment. A must-read for agency and corporate leaders who need to adopt battlefield instincts of strategy and tactics and apply them in the new fiscal war.Ward Melhuish, partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP
