Reeently, Talbot Partners has conducted an AEM study that has determined the following:

Each consultant takes approximately 20 business trips per year.

On average, 30 percent of trips are rescheduled due to conflicts and poor planning.

The travel group employs 14 individuals at $45,000 each to book travel. In addition, there is a travel manager and an assistant travel manager.

Benchmarking with a Talbot Partners' client indicates that the client incurs $30 cost per completed trip to book travel.


Determine the cost incurred by Talbot Partners compared to the benchmark cost.

Talbot Partners is planning a process improvement initiative aimed at reducing scheduling conflicts. What would be the savings if rescheduling could be reduced by 50 percent? Assume that the only variable cost in travel services is the wages paid to employees who book travel.
