He also sought to determine whether there are significant variations in practices in different industries, different management philosophies and between financially successful and unsuccessful companies. In the last two chapters he provides a number of suggestions for improving budgetary practices by examining those used by successful companies and exploring the implications of the research for managers and academics.
