This text is designed for the undergraduate managerial accounting course, particularly at schools looking for more innovative materials for their entire accounting curriculum. This text will specifically appeal to those instructors seeking a more decision-oriented product for accounting majors and non-majors alike. Managerial Accounting will have a significantly stronger business/ organizations orientation than other traditional managerial accounting products. This text will explain the critical role played by management accounting in making planning decisions and controlling managers to work toward organizational goals. The text is unique in its focus on organizations, (specifically smaller, entrepreneurial companies) and their uses of managerial accounting information. Managerial Accounting very clearly demonstrates that the practice of managerial accounting is an integral part of the firm's organizational infrastructure, not an isolated set of computational topics. Lastly, the diverse set of problem material offers challenging, thought-provoking chapter reinforcement, however carefully developed for the undergraduate accounting student.
