The focus of this paper is on the influence of the fast growth of organizations on the design process of management control systems. What are the management accounting and control problems that a fast growth organization encounters that can be ascribed to this growth. What are the circumstances arising from the fast growth of the organization that directly influence (re)design of the management control systems for the organization, and how can control help organizations with absorbing the negative effects of fast growth. The following paper outlines an explorative study into the subject.
