This course examines the use of financial and non-financial information for the purpose of analysing business processes to achieve superior organisational performance. The course introduces a number of management accounting tools and quantitative techniques that can be used to analyse how business processes consume resources, create value for a firm and its customers, and how this value may be enhanced through business process improvement. The course draws on textbook explanations and research-based insights of contemporary business practice in this area.
