Initial Budget Worksheet
In a paper that is a minimum of 3 pages long, based on your calculations what is the total budget for this project? According to this analysis, identify clearly and concisely at least three areas where you see potential cost savings.
For each of these areas of opportunity using your understanding of the project, explain a potential change in plan to reduce costs in the project. When making recommendations for cost reductions how can you ensure these cost reductions are in the best interest of the company, i.e. you aren’t sacrificing quality in order to cut costs.
Your submission should follow the essentials of APA (i.e., cover page, double-spaced, 12 pt. font, reference section at the end, in-text citations, etc.).
