Excerpts

Although this book can be used to supplement any management or cost accounting text, the readings have been tailored to accompany Anthony Atkinson, Robert S. Kaplan, and S. Mark Young's textbook, Management Accounting, Fourth Edition(Prentice Hall, 2004). As the chapters in the fourth edition have been rearranged to some extent and a new chapter on the Balanced Scorecard (Chapter 9) added, the sequence of readings has also been adjusted to reflect these changes. To Students For each textbook chapter there is a corresponding set of readings that complements text material and introduces you to applications of the material in a wide variety of contexts. At the end of each reading, questions test your understanding of what you have read. The readings are taken from many sources including the Wall Street Journal, Strategic Finance, Journal of Cost Management, Harvard Business Review, Accounting Horizonsand others. They represent both classic and current thinking on each of the topics covered in the text. The best way to use this book is to read each assigned article in one sitting. Then, read the article a second time taking notes and asking yourself how the article extends your understanding of the text material. In some cases, your instructor may assign specific questions that follow each of the readings. Taking the time to answer these questions thoughtfully will improve your understanding of the material. I hope you find the material stimulating and thought-provoking. To Instructors Readings in Management Accounting, Fourth Edition,contains 49 articles representing state-of-the-art thinking and examples on a wide variety of management accounting topics in many types of service and manufacturing contexts. The fourth edition includes all readings from the third edition and includes nine new articles (3.7, 4.3, 5.4, 7.2, 8.3, 9.2, 9.4, 10.4, and 10.5). The suggested solutions to the questions in this book can be found in the Instructor's Manualprepared for Readings in Management Accounting.While each 'of the readings has been listed for a specific chapter, in many cases, a reading may be successfully applied to several chapters. If you have a favorite reading that is not contained in this book, please send me a copy, and I will gladly consider it for the next edition and acknowledge your contribution. Thank you very much.
