Management control systems (MCSs) is a complex and multidimensional subject, which is comprehensively and clearly addressed by this new book. It assumes a basic level of knowledge of management accounting, but it is suitable for upper level undergraduates who have taken a prior management accounting course, as well as for postgraduates and practising professionals.Features and benefits Combination of an extensive set of case studies, text and real-life examples creates a balanced picture of the concepts, theories and issues surrounding the subject and equips students with the requisite skills to apply them to specific decision-making situations that managers face. Case study selection includes many Harvard Business School cases, as well as a range of original cases covering businesses in Europe, the USA and beyond. Coverage of the latest management control-related tools and techniques, such as EVAtrade; and Balanced Scorecard.
