The focus of this course is on managing issues that are associated with strategy implementation and the effective use of management accounting information for planning and control decisions in business. Students will learn how different corporate and business strategies affect the choice and design of ongoing formal systems used to plan and control the firm's performance, and hence, affects the design of management accounting control systems. The approach adopted blends theory with practice to facilitate insight into the complex issues impacting the use and application of accounting information. Its goal is for students to develop skills in analysing planning control issues and problem-solving by the application of theory to case study situations. The course links the more quantitative aspects of cost management and responsibility accounting with the more qualitative aspects of behaviour to highlight systems design and information use issues.
