Landmark Decisions has partnered with the Consortium for Advanced Management - International (CAM-I), CPA Canada, Barrington OPS, CBP-Software, and CloseReach to offer a variety of workshops all focused on Activity-Based Planning (ABP). The ABP methodology which focuses on resource/cost optimization, was popularized in research conducted by the CAM-I in its ground-breaking work on “The Closed Loop”. Operational models created using ABP concepts show how resource costs can be traced through business processes to develop detailed service delivery information for the determination of true product costs, service fees and budgets. These models can also be used for “what-if” analysis to better forecast the cost and impact of changes in business processes or client demands.
