Show Summary Details


This chapter argues that the multi-faceted nature of alliance formation and alliance management and control creates new demands for management accounting. It considers three key components of a management accounting framework for strategic alliances: the governance structure, the performance measurement and control structure, and the process for managing the alliance network over time. It shows that new practices are emerging and old practices are adapting to meet the demands of management accounting in the extended enterprise of the strategic alliance network.

Keywords: management accounting; alliance management; alliance formation; strategic alliance network
