Antonio Davila Assistant Professor of Accounting Stanford Graduate School of Business
Until recently, there was little research on the topic, but a new study by Antonio Davila, assistant professor of accounting, and George Foster, the Paul L. and Phyllis Wattis Professor of Management, explores this area.
Davila and Foster studied 78 companies in a variety of technical and non-technical industries, each less than 10 years old.
"Management systems are the foundation for growth," says Davila. "As an executive in one of the companies we worked with described it, 'management by personality' only works up to a certain point. After that, you need to put systems in place."
One key factor driving the timing of when financial management systems are adopted is when a chief financial officer is hired, according to Davila and Foster.
Davila and Foster are now exploring in more depth not only managerial accounting decisions, but also decisions concerning other systems such as strategy planning, human resources planning and compensation, marketing and sales, product development, and partnership.

According to Davila, Epstein, and Shelton: "The truth is that there is not much that is truly new about innovation.
There is a commonly held perception that allowing such creativity necessitates a laissez-faire atmosphere, but co-authors Mark Epstein, Robert Shelton and Tony Davila offer the counterintuitive belief that a culture of innovation requires focused leadership, creative but viable metrics, an emphasis on business models rather than individual products and an incentive program that rewards the high-stakes innovation that is lacking within a company.
It's a relatively daring concept but a vital one well researched and succinctly presented by this trio - Epstein and Davila are academics teaching at Stanford and Harvard and Shelton is a managing director of Navigant Consulting's Innovation practice.
Tony Davila, a faculty member of Stanford's Graduate School of Business, Marc Epstein, a research professor at Rice University's School of Management, and Robert Shelton, managing director of Navigant Consulting's Innovation practice write that contrary to popular belief, innovation:
