Casey Rowe

My background includes 10 years practicing management accounting in the aerospace industry. The most interesting thing I did as a practitioner was designing special-purpose accounting information for temporary cross-functional teams and participating on these teams to develop plans to restructure the organization. This experience motivated me to complete a PhD. My research focuses on whether and how management accounting influences the performance of high-stakes non-routine organizational changes involving cross-sections of professionals (e.g., committees, cross-functional teams) within large organizations, such as developing integrative organizational technologies that seek to improve system-wide performance (e.g., reengineering). To address this topic I use behavioral and economic theories and field and experimental research methods. I have publications in The Accounting Review and Accounting, Organizations, and Society.
