Management Control Systems

Performance Measurement, Evaluation and Incentives

Second Edition

Kenneth A. Merchant and Wim A. Van der Stede

With its unique range of international case studies, real-life examples and comprehensive coverage of the latest management control-related tools and techniques, this second edition of Management Control Systems is the ideal guide to this complex and multidimensional subject.

The authors approach management control from an accounting perspective as they discuss issues of performance measurement and evaluation in detail. They also provide a broad perspective on control systems, with a focus on issues such as planning and budgeting systems, internal controls, corporate culture, corporate governance, and ethics. Their unique treatment of the subject is thorough, logical, and easy-to-read, and is perfect for upper level undergraduates, postgraduates and practising professionals.

“If this book were fiction, I would refer to it as a real page-turner.”
