overheadWe are currently facing a challenging economic climate which is forcing many companies to cut costs in order to survive.  There are different ways of doing this, and unfortunately, a popular one is slashing employees, projects and even entire departments.  Consequently, almost everyone in the business world is now looking for a way to justify their work to upper management and other stakeholders in order to be spared.
