Description

Accounting for Decision Making and Control provides students and managers with an understanding appreciation of the strengths and limitations of an organisation's accounting system. This book provides a framework for thinking about accounting systems and a basis for analysing proposed changes to these systems. The Seventh Edition demonstrates that managerial accounting is an integral part of the firm s organisational architecture, not just an isolated set of computational topics. The purpose of this text is to provide students and managers with an understanding and appreciation of the strengths and limitations of an organisation's accounting system, thereby allowing them to be more intelligent users of these systems. The main purpose proposed by the author remains in tact for the Seventh Edition.
