"The Australian adaptation of Cost Accounting: A Managerial Emphasis combines the hallmark features of the leading American text with a contemporary Australian business focus. The clear and engaging writing style, the focus on human behavioural aspects of management accounting, and the strong technical focus are now infused with relevant and recognisable examples from the Australian and international business context, and enhanced by a greater strategic focus, particularly on the links between sustainability and economic performance. The text features a revised and simplified Five-Step Decision-Making Framework, interwoven through each chapter, to help students see how the demand for various types of management accounting information is a response to the decision-making needs of managers. The Australian edition was developed in close consultation with local academics who had previously used the American text and wanted content that provided great local content and context for their students. The authors have brought Australian business context and organisations into the text while retaining references to companies that operate globally and which students can recognise easily. Cost Accounting provides the best of both worlds?the author team comprises world leaders in the development of contemporary cost accounting and their ideas are illustrated with Australian examples that make the book come alive for students." --publisher's website
