ACCT5919 Business Risk Management

In a rapidly changing global world, with decreasing product life cycles and increasing customer and societal expectations, there are significant and increased risks associated with ongoing value creation by organisations.
 
In this world, value is put at risk - by competition, or failures of corporate leadership, strategies, processes, and capabilities. Developing effective ways of managing such Business Risks is proving to be a central agenda item for organisations seeking continuing success.
 
This course addresses this emergent field conceptually, technically and speculatively. Case studies and research reports are used throughout.

Course outline
ACCT5920 Managing Intangible Resources

The gap between the market value of firms and the capitalisation of their assets in the balance sheet highlights the value that investors are prepared to attribute to the intangible resources of many organisations (such as financial service, consulting, software development and e-commerce companies). The value generating potential of such organisations is attributed to resources, and competencies in managing those resources, that the traditional accounting system is both unable and unwilling to represent in explicit financial terms. This course aims to identify these intangible resources and to examine their role in achieving superior financial performance.

 

Topics include: customer relationships; supplier relationships; knowledge management; best practice people management, diversity; and community and government relationships. In addition, this course will also explore advances in financial reporting that attempt to capture and represent these intangible resources, for example, the Balanced Scorecard, Intangible Asset Monitor, triple line reporting, the Scandia Navigator system and other recent attempts at measuring and evaluating intangibles. Contemporary performance measurements such as the Net Promoter Score are examined also.

This course is based on the premise that long term sustainable value creation is achieved only from collaborative organisational practices and transparency among all stakeholders.

ACCT5922 E-Business: Strategy and Processes

Note: Not available to students who have completed ACCT3585 in the last three years.

The business world today operates on a global, networked, technology platform (the World Wide Web). The rapid implementation of networked technologies world wide has impacted national economies and transformed large and small organisations.

This course uses case studies of high performing e-businesses to facilitate discussion and understanding of the strategic, technological, operational and organisational changes required by organisations to remain competitive, as they confront the strategic opportunities and threats resulting from the global networked technologies.

The case studies analyse the emergence of new business models, including start up e-businesses, the transformation of traditional bricks and mortar companies into e-businesses and the creation of virtual global businesses with outsourced functions performed by a range of specialist companies.

The course also studies the move to digitalised core processes across the value chain– the e-enabling of customer relations; the e-enabling of enterprise resource planning, financial and accounting processes and human resource processes; and the emergence of global, digitalised supply chains. It reviews the financial opportunities the technologies provide to reduce costs, improve productivity and efficiency, and transform concepts of speed and flexibility.

This course examines the design, implementation and uses of Management Control Systems (MCS) within contemporary organisations.

The course is designed to be highly interactive. It encourages the application of reading materials to cases and reflections on the effectiveness of different MCS on performance in various organisational settings.


Issues considered include: the components of a MCS; MCS design and relationships with strategy; factors influencing the suitability/fit of control systems in different industry settings; uses of MCS to influence performance outcomes; MCS in different cultural and international settings; the product life cycle and MCS; and how MCS undergo change in established and newer organisations.
