About this book

Introduction

It is commonly believed that the emphasis on short-term goals leads to managers neglecting the long term. Oliver Gediehn examines the antecedents and determinants of managerial long-term (growth) orientation. Quantitative evidence casts serious doubts on the existence of a dysfunctional effect between the emphasis on short-term budgetary goals and myopic management behavior. The author reveals other factors of the organizational context such as corporate entrepreneurship and strategy-making which appear to be much more important levers of long-term orientation than the properties of the management accounting system.
