Extract from Langfield-Smith (1997)
The objective of this paper is to review and critique research that studies the relationship between MCS and strategy, and to evaluate the state of knowledge in this area.
The purpose of this paper was to review and critique research that examines the relationship between MCS and strategy, and to consider the state of our knowledge in this area. Surprisingly, relatively few empirical research papers have been published, despite strategy being of interest in the academic and professional literature in recent years.
Many research opportunities and unresolved questions remain. It is not clear what role MCS can play Extracts from the Langfield-Smith (1997) article are to bring intended strategies to realization, or whether MCS can minimize the disruption caused by strategic change (especially when those changes are spread over a considerable period of time). Research could be undertaken to explore whether the role and composition of MCS change as a company matures. The significance of resource sharing between SBUs for the design of MCS under different strategies could also be examined in more detail, particularly concerning the reliance on either behaviour or outcome controls. Analysis of research which examined the use of subjective and objective performance measures under different strategies revealed consistencies, but also raised questions about the forms of performance measures suitable for other employee groups. Empirical research to explore how performance measures and reward systems may be used under particular operational strategies, and to support new manufacturing philosophies is a broad topic for research.
