MANAGERIAL CONTROL AND INFORMATION

Managerial Control and Information advances quantifiable analysis of business operations by relating this perspective with aspects such as:

  • General policy
  • Resource management
  • The environment
  • Managing desirable human behaviors

It is focused on the gathering, processing, interpretation and employment of data -useful information for those responsible for decision-making within the company-and it offers innovators conceptual models for the design and implementation of operational, managerial and strategic control systems.
