Risk Management and Management Control Systems Similarities and Differences Book Excerpt:

The purpose of every for-profit organization is to earn profit, to secure its existence and to meet stakeholders' expectations, but every company is also confronted with certain risks. Some are easy to handle, others are existence-threatening. The accumulation of global economic crises, frauds, and financial scandals, but also terrorist attacks and failures in large computer systems, shows that businesses face greater challenges than before and verifies the importance of risk management. Hence, companies have to implement risk management systems and processes to identify, assess and treat risks. Many of these risks and problems are externally given, but some also result from the misconduct of a company's managers and employees. This leads to the need of systems that help to control employees and managers and ensure that they behave in the firm's sense. These systems are called management control systems. But what is more effective and efficient in supporting the company to reach its goals, risk management or management control systems? There is a research gap concerning this question. Thus, the resulting questions are as follows: What exactly is risk management? What exactly is a management control system? What are the similarities and differences? Is it possible to combine both to reach a kind of perfect control system for businesses? This book is intended to answer these questions.

Risk Profile Contingent Analysis of Management Control Systems Book Excerpt:

This study contributes to an existing and growing body of literature in the field of management accounting and control concerned with implications from increased uncertainty on MCS design and use. It is found that the choice of MCS reflects the firm’s risk profile, and that firms that choose MCS design and use better suited to their risk profile perform better than others. Using data from a survey of 362 Chief Executive Officers, this study yields a model of fit that enables the stimulation of selective improvements and helps to achieve a competitive advantage.

The Ecology of Management Accounting and Control Systems Book Excerpt:

Recent technological and environmental changes have shifted the operations of management control systems from meeting separate, individually based budgetary goals to management control techniques that emphasize group and team control structures. Accordingly, team-based management controls that incorporate normative, instrumental, and coercive controls are being used in complex organizations to monitor production quality and cost control, manage incentive systems, and design and implement management accounting systems. This book provides the first attempt to bring the theory of organizational ecology to the forefront in behavioral accounting research. The adaptation framework has been utilized to incorporate environmental and technological issues as well as organizational structural and contextual factors to examine recent developments in management control systems, particularly the use of accounting systems in managing the performance of teams. Researchers and teachers in graduate programs, managers in business, and service organizations who use work groups to manage their organization activities should find this work an immense addition to their collections.

Levers of Control Book Excerpt:

Based on a ten-year examination of control systems in over 50 U.S. businesses, this book broadens the definition of control and establishes a critical bridge between the disciplines of strategy and accounting and control. In addition to the more traditional diagnostic control systems, Simons identifies three new control systems that allow strategic change: belief systems that communicate core values and provide inspiration and direction, boundary systems that frame the strategic domain and define the limits of freedom, and interactive systems that provide flexibility in adapting to competitive environments and encourage organizational learning. These four control systems, according to Simons, will provide managers with the basic levers for pursuing strategic objectives.

Management Control of Global Supply Chains Book Excerpt:

Within global and rapidly changing environments, cooperation and networking offer possibilities for sharing costs and risks, as well as keeping up with constantly renewed information from outside the firms' boundaries. In line with this, an effective management control of supply chain processes seems to be relevant to compete against other supply chains and to get the required information. In this context, an implementation of a management control institution for inter-firm relations, like a supply chain management control (SCMC), that provides relevant qualitative and quantitative data to manage supply chains reflects an important issue. However, a comprehensive approach with regard to the management control of the entire supply chain and how it can be fulfilled has received scant attention in prior research. The aim of this thesis is therefore to analyze management control systems in global supply chains by means of a mixed methods design with special regard to functional, institutional and instrumental issues. In this context, qualitative data are combined with theoretical insights to develop an empirical model which is tested by means of a quantitative study. Following this, insights into management control aspects, organization of the supply chain management control, management control mechanisms, and the integration of suppliers are provided.
