APMAA 2012 Annual Conference Report

Jimmy Y.T. Tsay, National Taiwan University

  The 2012 Ph.D. colloquium and annual conference of the APMAA was hosted by and held at the prestigious and beautiful Xiamen University on November 14-17. The theme of the 2012 Annual Conference was management accounting: the optimization of management control.

             According to the conference organizer, there were more than one hundred paper submissions. After a rigorous reviewing process, seventy-three papers, of which thirty came from overseas, stood out and were accepted for presentation in the two-day program. The total number of conference participants was more than one hundred, including 43 from Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Qatar, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, UK, and USA.

             Professor Fu Yuanlue, a faculty member of the Accounting Department and the Deputy Director of the Center for Accounting Studies, of Xiamen University presided at the opening ceremony on November 15. Several VIPs of Xiamen University including Professor Li Jianfa, the University Vice President; Professor Shen Yifeng, the Dean of the School of Management; and Professor Qu Xiaohui, the Director of the Center for Accounting Studies, took turns to deliver their welcoming remarks.

          
  Professor Susumu Ueno addressed the audience on behalf of the APMAA by expressing his sincere appreciation to the conference organizer and also extending his welcoming messages to the participants. He called for the need to promote and share management accounting research in the region and to encourage more active participation from each country in the APMAA activities.  

     After a short break, two long expected plenary sessions followed in the morning. The first keynote speech was entitled “Management Accounting: Retrospect and Prospect” delivered by Professor Michael Bromwich of the London School of Economics. Professor Bromwich introduced the development of cost and management accounting from 1919 to now and the current status of management accounting and immediate challenges. He then looked at the likely changes in management accounting given upheavals in the environment. These changes in the environment include the financial crises, accelerating globalization, increasing technologically “fluid” organizations, more supplier and consumer partnerships including consumer involvement in product design, changes in the digital economy and increasingly fluid organization structures.             

              In the aspect of globalization, Professor Bromwich asked “Do we have a management accounting system that can capture all or any aspects of globalization?” He argued that management accounting would need to respond to the environment changes and therefore to become much more strategic and to understand and contribute to evolution of technology.             

              The second keynote speech entitled “Optimal Relative Performance Evaluation” was delivered by Professor Thomas Hemmer of Rice University. Professor Hemmer studied the properties of contracts that optimally condition an agent’s compensation both on his own performance and on how well he fared relative to a peer. He pointed out that linearly aggregated performance measures are not sufficient and a contract written on own minus scaled peer performance is not optimal. What is optimal, in his words, depends on how the agent’s effort impacts the covariance between own and peer performance.             

              In the afternoon of November 15, there were five plenary sessions in which the speakers were either prominent Chinese accounting researcher or famous professional practitioner. Professor Jason Xiao of Cardiff University made a presentation on “Complementarities of Management Accounting and Information Technology”. He investigated the impacts of management accounting control systems and information technology on business performance. Professor Zhijun Lin of Hong Kong Baptist University shared his paper on “Performance Outcomes of Balanced Scorecard Application in Public Hospitals in China”. Professor Lin found that BSC could be implemented as well in not-for-profit organizations as in for-profit enterprises. However some aspects of BSC implementation needed to be modified to successfully fit into not-for-profit organizations.             

              Then Professor Yuanlue Fu of Xiamen University presented his research entitled “Research on the Design and Optimization of Management Control Mechanism”. He examined the theory of management control systems, proposed a need for reforms in management control mechanism, and created an innovative model of implementing management control mechanism with strategy focus. It was argued that the model would offer more value to enterprises and enrich the theory of management controls.             

              Another presentation was made by Professor Yuming Hu of Jinan University on “Chinese Management Accounting Research – Past, Present and Future”. Professor Hu introduced the achievements Chinese management accounting profession has made and the current development of management accounting in China. He hoped China learn from the Western world about doing management accounting research in the near future, then progress into the stage of developing its own innovative and original research in the long run.              

              The last keynote speech was made by Mr. Liqun Cai, the CEO of Xiamen Port Development Corporation. Mr. Cai shared with the audience the management control system design and practice in his company. He attributed the success of his company’s management control systems to strong leadership, advanced information technology, and commitment and mindset of employees.             

              On the second day of the conference, there were 16 concurrent sessions held. In total there were 47 papers presented in four different categories. In almost each of the presentations, discussions between the presenter and the audience and comments from participants proved to be active and valuable.             

              In addition to the regular annual conference, a doctoral colloquium was scheduled on one day before the conference. The main purpose of the PhD colloquium is to offer PhD students an opportunity to present their research paper in English publicly, receive feedback from outside professors and to directly interact with peers.  This year only four papers were presented, much less than those presented in Malaysia last year. We do hope that our members can encourage your doctoral students to grasp this valuable opportunity in future years.             

              The conference organizer arranged for us a half-day tour of Xiamen Bay and the Gulang Islet on Saturday morning. The Gulang Islet is a small place with not only beautiful scenery but also rich and diversified cultures. Everyone seemed to have enjoyed the tour very much though it was raining all the way through. To us, happy time always seems to be too short.
