The purpose of management accounting is to support decision-making and performance management in an organisation.
As accountants, therefore, we must have a wide range of tools and techniques that we can use to support the needs of our organisations. Throughput Accounting and Lean Accounting are both examples of flow accounting that provide tools for process-orientated organisations.
