First published in 1999. This text aims to consider how the financial controller/management accountant decides to design a cost management system given the range of approaches to cost managment advocated in recent years. The book reports on research which tested the relationship between cost management systems adopted and the strategic orientation of the company, through five detailed case studies of well-known and named companies. The case studies trace the developments in each company through time.
