Abstract:

This teaching case examines how work-related injuries, left unmanaged, can threaten the growth of an organization. Emphasis is placed on the cash flow stresses caused by an escalating work-related injury problem at a growing manufacturing firm, the integral role accounting information plays in managing those injuries, and how incentive pay pegged to work-related injuries can cause fraudulent behavior without proper internal controls. This teaching case will challenge students to understand the limitations of traditional financial statements in managing complex business problems and the role of performance metrics in helping managers set targets to solve challenging business problems. The potential unintended consequences of poorly designed performance metrics are the main takeaway lessons from this case. This case is based on a real set of circumstances that took place at a manufacturing firm located in the United States. The name and industry of the organization along with the individuals it employed have been changed to protect the identity of everyone involved.
