But they also provide a broad perspective on control systems, with a focus on issues such as planning and budgeting systems, internal controls, corporate culture, corporate governance, and ethics. Their unique treatment of the subject is thorough, logical, and easy to read, and is perfect for upper level undergraduates, postgraduates and practising professionals.
