Read an Excerpt

PREFACE:

Preface

While this book can be used to supplement any management or cost accounting text, the readings have been designed to accompany Anthony Atkinson, Rajiv Banker, R. S. Kaplan and S. Mark Young's textbook, Management Accounting, 3rd Edition (Prentice Hall, 2001).

To Students

For each textbook chapter there is a corresponding set of readings that highlights 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, Management Accounting, Journal of Cost Management, Harvard Business Review and others. They represent very current thinking on each of the topics covered in the text.

Probably 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, Third Edition contains thirty-nine 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 third edition has been updated from the second with the inclusion of thirteennew, recently published articles.

Readings in Management Accounting, Third Edition is designed primarily to be used with Atkinson, Banker, Kaplan and Young's text, Management Accounting, Second Edition (Prentice Hall, 2001). After publication of the first edition, however, I discovered that a number of instructors who had adopted a different textbook had chosen to use Readings in Management Accounting as a supplementary text, or in some cases as a stand-alone text. To aid these instructors, I have written a separate Instructor's Manual (available from Prentice Hall) which keys the readings in this book to chapters in a number of other leading texts. Thus, suggested solutions to the questions in this book can be found in both the Instructor's Manual to the text Management Accounting as well as in the separate Instructor's Manual prepared for Readings in Management Accounting. While each of the readings has been listed for a specific chapter, in many cases, a reading may successfully be 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. Thank you very much.

Acknowledgments

I would like to thank Kathryn Sheehan for her editorial assistance and Debbie Hoffman and P. J. Boardman for their encouragement and support of the project. Also, I would like to thank Bob Kaplan, Harvard University, Gerald Meyers, Pacific Lutheran University, Mike Shields, Michigan State and Shannon Anderson, University of Michigan for readings suggestions. In particular I am grateful to Ella Mae Matsumura, University of Wisconsin, Madison for her very thoughtful critique of the first and second editions of this book.
