• Macroenvironmental dynamism and firm risk management - An exploratory investigation

      Klein, Florian; Puck, Jonas F.; Weiss, Martin (2019)
      The macroenvironment constitutes a widely acknowledged source of firms’risk in international business. A substantial body of research on macroenvironmental risks encapsulates a variety of measurement approaches, antecedents,and managerial consequences. However, a review of established macroenvironmental risk measures reveals that these measures strongly focus on the quality of the macroenvironment, assuming a rather static perspective and mainly excluding dynamic aspects. Building on prior research on macroenvironmental risk as well as on environmental dynamism, we argue that macroenvironmental dynamism – i.e. the frequency, intensity, and predictability of macroenvironmental variation – is a pivotal source of risk in international business, which so far only received limited attention. Moreover, we suggest that macroenvironmental dynamism influences firms’ risk management activities, a measure we use to empirically investigate firm implications of macroenvironmental dynamism. We explore this effect using primary survey data on risk management activities from 158 foreign subsidiaries in six emerging countries and secondary data on the macroeconomic context in these countries. We find evidence that macroenvironmental dynamism, if compared to macroenvironmental quality, exerts a strong influence on firms’ risk management activities. Our findings enhance the understanding of the dynamic nature of macroenvironmental risk in international business as well as provide a concept to more comprehensively measure macroenvironmental dynamism that future research can build upon.

    • Management accounting in de nieuwe productie-omgeving

      Bruggeman, Werner; Everaert, Patricia; Slagmulder, Regine; Waeytens, Dominique (1998)
      Dit boek geeft een overzicht van de belangrijkste recente trends in management accounting. Het geeft een grondig inzicht hoe nieuwe visies omtrent strategisch management en veranderingen in de productie-systemen nieuwe eisen stellen aan de management accounting en de kostprijscalculatiesystemen. In het bijzonder beschrijft het boek de basisprincipes van activity-based costing, just-in-time accounting, througput accounting, prestatiemeting en geeft een overzicht van de nieuwe raamwerken met betrekking tot beoordeling van investeringsprojecten in geavanceerde productietechnologieën. Met dit boek richten we ons tot de controllers en interne accountants van productie-ondernemingen en tot de leidinggevenden uit productie- en logistieke afdelingen. Het doel van het boek is in de eerste plaats, een waaier van interface-problemen tussen management accounting en de productiefunctie te analyseren. Nu aangevuld met een bijdrage over target costing.

    • Management control: Concepts, methods & practice

      Bruggeman, Werner; Hozée, Sophie; Slagmulder, Regine (2018)
      Management Control: Concept, Methods and Practices conceptualises management control concepts, methods and practices used by C-level executives and controllers in managing financial and strategic performance. The authors show how financial and strategic performance control processes can be integrated in order to create and improve internal strategic alignment. Alongside traditional controls, such as managing cost centres, profit centres, investment centres, budgeting and variance reporting, the use of advanced costing systems, such as activity-based costing and time-driven activity-based costing, and the balanced scorecard in planning and executing improvements of financial and strategic performance is discussed. The authors illustrate how controllers can run a control process in which intended strategies, performance measures, performance targets, actions and budgets are all aligned with each other across all organisational levels (vertical alignment) and between business units and functions (horizontal alignment), and in which financial performance is controlled in relation to strategic performance. The authors promote a holistic approach and highlight the role of human motivation in the design of management control systems. Using insights from the psychology literature on motivation in the workplace, this book argues that management control systems should not only align goals and interests of internal organisational actors but also enhance their autonomous motivation and well-being in order to achieve sustainable performance. More specifically, the authors draw on self-determination theory to explain managerial behaviour in response to the use of control systems. Through the use of numerous examples from European companies, this book provides the reader with a range of familiar issues and a wide variety of ideas and methods to use in response. The book provides materials that can be used in business and management control courses at undergraduate and graduate level, as well as for use in the workplace, benefiting managers, consultants, financial analysts, controllers, information systems designers and executive leaders of organizations.

    • Management of convergence in innovation strategies and capabilities for value creation beyond blurring industry boundaries

      Hacklin, Fredrik (2008)
      Throughout the past decade, the phenomenon of technological convergence has increasingly gained managerial attention. In this special form of technological change, the coming-together of previously distinct knowledge bases gives rise to the creation of new applications and business models. When such innovations emerge at the intersection of industries, the resulting creative destruction may exceed previously established industry boundaries. As a consequence, convergence does not only promise the creation of new value, but may imply significant disruptions to established industries. Based on investigating 26 firms within the ICT industry, this book highlights implications of the convergence phenomenon on firms’ innovation management practices, and derives strategic guidelines for building and sustaining business models beyond blurring industry boundaries.
