International Business Control, Reporting and Corporate Governance book cover

International Business Control, Reporting and Corporate Governance

Global business best practice across cultures, countries and organisations

This book is designed to help Business Controllers / Accountants / Finance Directors / Bankers / Financial Analysts / Business Consultants to understand that International Business Control is much more than just a business being IFRS and US GAAP compliant, or just an extension of the domestic HQ control system.

This is the case for executives, managers and professionals who are promoted from a domestic role to an international position, (e.g. HQ global role, or expatriation) or who have to control/operate complex joint ventures combining culturally diverse organisations, or who are involved in off-shoring operations/global sourcing. The book is also for managers, accountants and bankers involved in trans-national Mergers & Acquisition.
