Abstract

This theoretical paper aims to develop a comprehensive contingency model, by integrating contingency theory and upper echelon theories, which investigate the effect of perceived environmental uncertainty (PEU), advanced manufacturing technology (AMT), CEOs involvement in networks and CEO characteristics on sophisticated costing techniques (SCTs). It also measures the mediating effect of SCTs on firm performance. The model, if empirically validated, would enable a determination of suitable fits between the uses of SCTs and contextual variable for improving performance in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The principal contribution of this paper lies in synthesizing the literature to develop a testable contingency framework of SCTs, which considers the relationship between an inclusive set of contingent factors and SCTs as well as its mediating effect on the relationship between these factors and performance simultaneously. As such, this model is expected to help increase the explanatory power of management accounting research in SMEs context.
