Product description

Focussing squarely on the needs of today's business and non-specialist accounting students, the aim of this book is to set management accounting into a contemporary real world context, helping students to apply the theories they learn to management situations and to use clear thinking to obtain the best financial outcome. Proctor will assist the reader in the core areas of understanding the principles of management accounting, mastering the numerical aspects of the subject, interpreting the results and understanding the contribution management accounting can make to the management process. Frequently praised for the quality and clarity of writing, this book combines appropriate depth of coverage with a manageable size and a clear and uncluttered layout. It takes an explicitly managerial and practitioner perspective throughout and features really strong application to the real business world.
