Summary
  • Managerial accounting data is designed to ease and enhance decision-making, but this information can also influence action. Some preliminary notions about why and how a managerial accounting approach such as investment return can initiate and sustain forceful action are examined. Five sets of questions are discussed that can help assess the degree to which an accounting approach or procedure can have this initiating or sustaining effect. The questions are: (1) does the approach or procedure draw attention to a limited option set, (2) are actions stated in positive terms, (3) how strong is the presumption of underlying logic in the procedure, (4) does the procedure stimulate public, irreversible, volitional performance, and (5) is the belief in the logic and value of the approach or procedure a shared one?
