On the last blog post (Product Cost Management – What is it?), I talked the different ways that my colleagues and I have seen the meaning of Product Cost Management take shape over our careers and PCM’s development. Culture, Goals, Incentives – before attempting to put in place any process, people, or tools, the organization first has to ask the tough strategic questions.
One important thing for people who are navigating the map to realize is that Culture, Process, Team, and Tools are all interconnected and influence one another (see the top right in the header of the map).
Like all high level maps, there are cities and even countries shown on it that have more detailed maps of their own.

I am the owner of ORAGO, a german software company that offers product costing & project controlling software. I really liked that idea, and I’m a big believer in 1-page maps that give the reader an overview of a complex subject, as well as a starting point to dig for deeper detail.

And the big question: What is the priority of PCM and how much investment (honestly) will we make to close the gap from between today’s state to our goal? In the PCM World Map, many of the major BIC software systems are shown in a 2×2 diagram. The company may not have reached a capability level to benefit from some processes, people, or teams.
Once the company answers these questions, it can talk about the strategic structures that drive behavior (roles, incentives, and leadership support).
