"Management control is a process that enables an organisation ta clarify its performance objectives and guide their achievement white ensuring that the actions undertaken by ifs various units are coherent. "With that definition, this book places the control process at the heart of the manager's role within the organisation. It offers a refreshing vision of management control by organising its discourse around the fundamental challenges involved in the control process. Understanding these challenges will enable managers to enrich the way they create the tools that support the process.Chapter 1 offers a synthesis of management control's scope and functions. It provides the reader with an overview of the themes developed in later sections:- Part 1 is devoted to the challenge of measuring performance, which forms the basisof management control systems and comprises several different facets. A distinction is made between measurement systems elaborated at the corporate level and those devised at more detailed levels (business units) which comprise various perspectives. The section clarifies the principles on which each different measurement system is elaborated.- Part 2 develops the control cycle and its two main components - planning and ex post results analysis - and highlights each stage's goals and principles. These provide a framework that allows us to take a more nuanced look at the debate surrounding relevance of budgets.- Part 3 takes a look at some important complementary questions, detailing the different types of Performance Programmes that companies have been developing alongside their management control systems. It also stresses the importance of information systems and the tremendous developments they have experienced recently.This book is aimed at managers - the principal players in the control process -, the controllers who animate the process, and students pursuing advanced management studies. It contains examples, quiz sections with answers and explanations, and a synthesis of the key messages of each chapter. This format enables readers to approach the richness of the control process in a progressive, concrete and structured manner.

Solving complex problems and selling their solutions is critical for personal and organizational success. However, it doesn’t come naturally and most of us haven’t been taught how to do it well. Research shows a host of pitfalls trips us up when we try: We’re quick to believe we understand a situation and jump to a flawed solution. We seek to confirm our hypotheses and ignore conflicting evidence. We view challenges incompletely through the frameworks we know instead of with a fresh pair of eyes. And when we communicate our recommendations, we forget our reasoning isn’t obvious to our audience.How can we do it better?In Cracked It!, seasoned strategy professors and consultants Bernard Garrette, Corey Phelps and Olivier Sibony present a rigorous and practical four-step approach to overcome these pitfalls. Building on tried-and-tested (but rarely revealed) methods of top strategy consultants, research in cognitive psychology, and the latest advances in design thinking, they provide a step-by-step process and toolkit that will help readers tackle any challenging business problem. Using compelling stories and detailed case examples, the authors guide readers through each step in the process: from how to state, structure and then solve problems to how to sell the solutions.Written in an engaging style by a trio of experts with decades of experience researching, teaching and consulting on complex business problems, this book will be an indispensable manual for anyone interested in creating value by helping their organizations crack the problems that matter most
