Description: This course covers how strategic planning and control systems can give managers the timely quantitative and qualitative information they need to “drive into the future” with confidence and success. Firms use performance measurement and control systems to promote effective and efficient utilization of organizational resources, and to ensure success of their business strategies. Are products and services being offered in the least costly manner? Is quality being maintained? Are businesses processes running efficiently?

Through a series of case and discussions, we will examine the properties of performance measurement and control systems that address these issues.
