Summary
"Accounting for Decision Making and Control provides students and managers with an understanding and appreciation of the strengths and limitations of an organization's accounting system which allows them to be more intelligent users of these systems. The 6th edition provides a framework for thinking about accounting systems and a basis for analyzing proposed changes to these systems. The text demonstrates that managerial accounting is an integral part of the firm's organizational architecture, not just an isolated set of computational topics. This new edition has improved its readability and accessibility to students."--Publisher
