The 2 Topics Discussed

Corporate Performance Management

2 Accounting credits

Poor strategy execution frustrates many executives as their organizations struggle with performance improvement, making decisions using intuition in the absence of hard data. Corporate performance management (CPM) seamlessly integrates many techniques including strategy maps and a balanced scorecard. Together they align manager and employee behavior, actions, and priorities using key performance indicators (KPIs) with specific targets to enable accountability.

Effective Management Accounting

2 Accounting credits

Critics have claimed that traditional managerial accounting is at best useless and at worst dysfunctional and misleading.  Most line managers do not trust their management accounting data. 

21st Century management accounting develops cost/unit metrics that are useful for budgeting, cost analysis and control.  Current methods bring truly accurate fact-based costing visibility, tracing costs and identifying cause-and-effect relationships rather than broadly allocating overhead.  This information provides the ability to reveal the true profit margins for products as well as for specific sales channels and customers. 

Removing the barriers caused by your current management accounting techniques can provide huge rewards.
