Overview

This innovative, contemporary, and relevant text focuses on the use of accounting information for decision making and places students into situations where management decisions need to be made. Students learn both when and why accounting information is key to communicating important information within an organization, so that as managers they can make informed choices. The first half of the text demonstrates how organizations use accounting information to make financing, investing, and operating decisions. The second half emphasizes managerial accounting as a key communication process for management decision making.
