What makes Management Control Systems effective and what framework can be applied to analyze Management Control Systems on a macro level? These and other questions were discussed during a WHU Research Seminar on June 8 by Jasmijn Bol, Associate Professor of Accounting at Tulane University. Jasmijn visited the IMC to present her recent project “The Dual-Role Framework for Effective Management Control Systems: Activating and Directing Employee Effort” and meet with faculty and doctoral students. Besides presenting her own research, Jasmijn also provided helpful feedback on the projects of several doctoral students.
