Description of Handbook of Financial Planning and Control

A practical guide on how to manage resources, as well as a critical examination of the conventional techniques of financial planning and control through the introduction of new approaches. In this third edition, additional chapters have been added to introduce: strategic management accounting; activity based costing and the balanced scorecard; new performance measures; venture capital; knowledge management and outsourcing; and financial considerations of eBusiness. The book has been revised to encourage the reader to think about and reflect upon the emergence of principles and practices related to financial planning and control. While it is addressed primarily to business managers with an interest in financial planning and control, the range of subjects covered and the breadth of approach adopted by many of the contributors should make the "Handbook of Financial Planning and Control" useful to those managers in non-financial functions (as well as students of management) who must reconcile theory with the everyday reality of modern business practice.
