Developments in the practice of and research on management accounting continue. Many organisations are attempting to change their existing, or implement new and innovative, management accounting systems and practices, based on new management accounting and business ideas, strategies, technologies, structures, processes, operative locations, and information and societal changes. A number of new challenging objects of planning, control and measurement have recently emerged, including technological disruption, networks of organisations, environmental and organizational sustainability, and post-pandemic shifts in working arrangements. The roles and designs of budgeting systems appear to be changing and the significance of performance management and measurement in many variations is increasing, not least in the area of HR and more recently sustainability. While much of this innovation and implementation concentrates on new costing or performance management or measurement systems and practices, there are also changes related to the roles of management accountants in organisations. Current developments such as those outlined above provide many new and exciting opportunities for innovative management accounting research, and for a fruitful integration of existing accounting knowledge and the currently emerging practice issues. There are indications of increased collaboration between researchers and practitioners in the spirit of engaged scholarship, too.
The purpose of this conference, like its thirteen predecessors, is to examine innovative management accounting practices and innovative ideas about how to conduct research on them.
Submission of papers that deal with innovative management accounting practices, theories, or research methods are particularly relevant to this conference. For reference, papers on the following types of issues are welcomed warmly:
