To understand the inherent challenges associated with the implementation of management control systems several real life case studies was undertaken. Research studies indicate that the management of a company had its own unique management protocol to meet the market demands and hence there were varied challenges (Chavan, 2009). Some of the common issues that they faced were financial constraints. It was found that this was a major roadblock in implementing the needed MCS system. Another issue was that of communication problems between the different systems of the organizations (Laitinen, 2002). In such a scenario it was understood that there should be better communication platforms between the different departments of the organization. It was also established in research that each organization has at some point come up with a performance management evaluation. Implementation of management control did have its benefits like it operational, strategic, behavioral benefits (Langfield-Smith, 1997). It was found from the study that the benefits of the management control are numerous if the companies are able to tackle the issues mentioned above with innovative unique solutions based on its needs.
Every corporation that is created has an ultimate vision for the future. There should be a body existing in the corporation to check and see if the activities of the organization are in that direction. Periodic evaluation is mandatory to check and see if everything is working as desired. These are some of the issues that the companies face while implementing management control systems. From the analysis, it is seen that there are both design and implementation level challenges for the managers.
