Management accounting education has long revolved around large-scale traditional manufacturing industries. We know that this is no longer the operating environment for many businesses and yet many textbooks have not undergone the changes that these organisations have. Management Accounting in the Contemporary Business World recognises the changes that have taken place, such as the shift from manufacturing to services, globalization and the increased role of technology, and addresses the issue of how management accounting should be undertaken in modern operating environments. The book provides a comprehensive discussion about the nature of the changes involved and their implications for all aspects of management accounting in the operational, tactical and strategic spheres. The content of the book is enhanced by the use of many practical case studies.
Due to globalization, business opportunities can be established in new countries more than ever before. The Arab countries are gaining more attention as emerging markets in global business. Only a small proportion of management accounting research on transitional economies deals with some aspects of Arab management accounting and control systems. The research investigates the characteristics of Arab management accounting systems. Thus, this research explores the role of management accounting in Arab companies in decision-making, strategic planning, management control, and performance measurement. A qualitative field study is an essential part of the research methodology. An in-depth case study is also conducted on a Sharia-compliant company, which represents a special kind of Arab companies. The research provides practical implications and is very beneficial for Arab companies as well as for international companies operating in the Arab World. In addition, this research is of the interest of international institutions of accounting and management accounting in terms of a better understanding of management accounting practices in the Arab World.
