The aim of the research is to contribute to a better understanding of how visualisation and accounting interact in organisations, and to thereby improve practitioners’ and researchers’ “visual literacy”. I focus on the challenges that result when the “visual logic” is integrated in organisation’ management control and financial reporting activities.
I focus on three interrelated themes:
- What do users do with visualisations in organisations?
- What do visualisations do to organisations?
- What can the way visualisations are used teach us about organisations?
