Management accounting education has long revolved around large-scale traditional manufacturing industries. We know that this is no longer the operating environment for many businesses and yet many textbooks have not undergone the changes that these organisations have. Management Accounting in the Contemporary Business World recognises the changes that have taken place, such as the shift from manufacturing to services, globalization and the increased role of technology, and addresses the issue of how management accounting should be undertaken in modern operating environments. The book provides a comprehensive discussion about the nature of the changes involved and their implications for all aspects of management accounting in the operational, tactical and strategic spheres. The content of the book is enhanced by the use of many practical case studies.
