About this book

Introduction

This book examines present management accounting issues in the light of Japanese experiences. This is particularly important in the study of management accounting since Japanese management not only learnt from the West but also grew out of it. The book describes the importance and meaning of feed forward management accounting, compares Asian and Japanese management accounting with the Western approach and examines the philosophy behind them. It ends by looking into the future of management accounting science.
