 Management Accounting Inscriptions and the Post-Industrial Experience of Organizational Control

This chapter argues that organisational control and accounting’s role in it has become an increasingly digitised and technologically enabled process. New centres of calculation have emerged within post-industrial organisations which, in turn, are facilitating more disembedded and intensified forms of accounting control. This post-industrial phenomenon of organisational control is examined by drawing on a case study of an Australian call centre.

Keywords: organisational control; management accounting; call centre; post-industrial organisations; accounting control
