About the Book :

Cost Management not only provides readers with an in-depth understanding of cost accounting procedures, it also empowers them to use cost accounting information for decision-making. Unifying the cost accounting content are three underlying themes that are emphasized throughout the book: 1) uncertainty and bias, 2) decision-making, and 3) ethics. The authors also present a problem-solving model, Steps for Better Thinking (SBT), which can be used to analyze and tackle various ethical scenarios. This model will help readers quickly progress through accounting problems in increasing levels of complexity.
