LEARNING OBJECTIVES
After studying this chapter, you should be able to:
  1. Explain the basic nature of managerial work.
  2. Discuss the management process and describe how management accounting supports these efforts.
  3. Describe how a BPA lens affects management accounting practices and how these differ from financial accounting.
  4. Identify the primary types of information in a management accounting database and analyze the concept of a decision domain and how it is applied to organizations.
  5. Illustrate how measurements influence decision making and behavior in organizations.
  6. Interpret the IMA Statement of Ethical Professional Practice that guides the use and presentation of information within organizations.
  7. Describe the various career paths open to management accounting professionals.
Success in business boils down to managers making good decisions. Behind every such decision lies a management accounting database supported by an information network that either formally (for example, with rules or policies) or informally (for instance, the culture of an organization) links the organization’s people and progress across space and time. This network of information, and the data that flows through this network, defines and shapes the practice of management accounting, which is the focus of this textbook.
This book is built around three unique features:
  1. An integrative framework that uses a business planning and analysis perspective to emphasize the relationship between management accounting and management decision making, control, and information.
  2. Three Excel-based databases that illustrate how organizations use information to complete the management accounting processes of planning, decision making, and control.
  3. Three industry settings (an airline, a kitchen cabinet manufacturer, and an automobile dealership) to help you understand management accounting in action.
The overriding objective is to improve your existing critical thinking skills by helping you learn to analyze and respond to the challenges faced every day by organizations and the managers who run them.

The World of Management: An Overview

This chapter introduces the management process—what managers do to ensure that their organization achieves its objectives. We will approach management accounting from a business planning and analysis (BPA) perspective, which, when applied to management accounting issues, includes all of the activities in which managers use information, whether for planning, decision making, or control.
OBJECTIVE 1
Explain the basic nature of managerial work.
Information lies at the center of the management process. Information is data that has been organized to meet a specific need during decision making and analysis. It is the lifeblood of any organization, essential to effective decision making and the actions of management. A key focus of this book is to illustrate and explain what types of information are used during the various stages of the management process. This chapter focuses on understanding the basic elements of the integrative management accounting framework and how it relates to the work done by business managers. Attention the...
