This unit builds on the types of accounting information for management planning, control and decision-making that were introduced in MAA703 Accounting for Management. The unit moves from an essentially short-term, operational perspective to a long term, strategic perspective by integrating strategic management process to real life business cases.  In particular, the unit focuses on the link between strategy and resource management in creating value for customers and shareholders. The unit also examines the roles of management accountants in supporting sustainability strategies and providing alignment mechanisms in environmental management in a rapidly changing and increasingly competitive global market.
