About the book

This book is an adaptation of the successful US text Cost Management by Hilton, Maher and Selto, written specifically for an international audience.

Major improvements include:
  • Diverse and truly international examples of organizations - Examples used throughout the book are from all over the world and represent manufacturing, retail, not-for-profit, and service firms in many different countries.
  • Completely restructured and rewritten text - The book has been rewritten, restructured and also shortened significantly to align content closer with international courses.
  • Integral use of spreadsheets - Spreadsheet software is used for explaining techniques and making applications more realistic.
  • In depth research - Summaries of international research studies that address important cost management issues have been updated and more references to recent research findings have been added.
  • Intuitive explanation of accounting - The authors show directly how events impact the balance sheet and profit and loss account.
