There seems to be recognition in the literature that traditional management accounting and control systems (MAC) have limitations. However, there is limited knowledge about the practices organisations with a strategic focus adopt in relation to the development and operation of MAC systems. The purpose of this paper is to report the findings of a study designed to observe and codify MAC practices and their interface with strategy within the natural setting of an organisation. The research is based on a case study of a New Zealand based food manufacturing company. The findings provide evidence of an organic approach in the development and support of a strategic focus to MAC. This suggests an innovative style of performance management in a contemporary organisation.
