A revolution has occurred in management accounting. Some commentators have attributed this to the concept of activity-based costing, which was popularised in the US during the mid-1980s, and hailed as a more accurate product-costing method than what was then referred to as traditional cost accounting.

Thereafter, a large number of innovations and other new techniques were proposed and adopted by many companies. These developments have important implications for all those teaching and practising the discipline of management accounting.

A guide for anyone studying, practising or researching in this area, this book is a series of essays covering some of the main advances. Topics include:

  • the need for relevance in management accounting;
  • activity-based costing;
  • customer profitability analysis;
  • performance measurement and balanced scorecard;
  • the importance and measurement of quality;
  • the budgeting process.
