Time-Driven Activity-Based Costing: A Simpler and More Powerful Path to Higher Profits

As traditional methodologies of Activity-Based Costing (ABC) often have proved to be too time consuming and expensive to implement on a large scale within organizations Kaplan and Anderson introduce in this book time-driven activity-based costing (TDABC). This new methodology is based on two fundamental elements, i.e. the cost of resource capacity and the resource capacity required. It is therefore an easier and more powerful approach for measuring cost and profitability. Anyone wishing to embark on an ABC project should first read this book.
