This collection of cases challenges students to diagnose a situation, lend order to a somewhat unstructured picture, and then to apply useful analytical frameworks to deal with the issues. The book adds new cases that have international flavour, ethical dimensions and activity-based costing, and includes a variety of cases that range in length from one page to ten pages. This text is designed for use on courses in Management, Accounting, Cost Accounting, or Management Control Systems.
