|概要||This book attempts what for many in the accounting profession has been the impossible: a unified accounting system for measuring and reporting the performance of human service organizations as well as...firms in the profit sector. By providing an interdisciplinary approach, stakeholders are better able to understand the gestalt of an organization and evaluate its effectiveness in achieving its mission. It shifts emphasis within human service organizations toward outcomes, thereby leading to change in behavior and attitude among management, staff, funders, the general public, and the consumer-client. It also provides a framework from which to address current social issues, and helps formulate an economic answer to social issues that is easily recognized and is in conformity with societal goals. 続きを見る|
