BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
The rate of change in the practice of and research on management accounting appears to be increasing. Many organisations are attempting to change their existing, or implement new and innovative, management accounting practices, based on new management accounting and business ideas, practices, strategies, structures, processes, systems, and information.
A number of new challenging objects of measurement and control have recently emerged, including intellectual capital and networks of organisations. The roles and designs of budgeting systems appear to be changing. While much of this innovation and implementation concentrates on new costing or performance measurement systems, there is also change related to the roles of management accountants in organisations. Current developments outlined above provide many new opportunities for innovative management accounting research, and for a fruitful integration of existing accounting knowledge and the currently emerging practice issues.
The purpose of this conference, like its seven predecessors, is to examine innovative management accounting practices and innovative ideas about how to conduct research on them. The conference will consist of plenary sessions and research paper presentations.
The general theme for this next conference is "Innovations in management accounting practice and research”.
The invited plenary speakers are:
Ramji Balakrishnan, University of Iowa, USA
Chris Chapman, Imperial College, UK
Steve Kachelmeier, University of Texas, USA
Teemu Malmi, Aalto University, Finland
Their presentations will cover issues like the role and contributions of numerical simulation experiments in management accounting; researching costs and costing systems in healthcare organizations; the influence of management accounting practices, in particular incentives, on individual, team, and organizational creativity and innovation; and how management controls can support innovations in organizations.
