Abstract [en]

This is a case study of how management control system is implemented in multi international R&D focused companies in Greater Copenhagen. The focus has been to see if the implementations of management control system with a focus on the indirect control systems are in line with the current research, in the aspect of promoting innovation. A literature review of known frameworks and related theories as well as a focused study of the latest publications within the area was preformed and presented. The study includes data collection from interviews and analysis of three companies, all with a major office or headquarter in Greater Copenhagen.The findings from the study is that mature companies in the Greater Copenhagen region are well aligned with latest research in some areas within cultural and personnel control. Clear similarities can be seen for almost all areas. However, differences do exist in ways of rewarding innovation, codes of conduct, physical arrangements, job rotations and trainings.
