| The first step in management's decision-making process is, "Determine and evaluate possible courses of action."
| The final step in management's decision-making process is to actually make the decision.
| Accounting's contribution to management's decision-making process occurs primarily in evaluating possible courses of action and in reviewing the results.
| In making business decisions, management ordinarily considers only financial information because it is objectively determined.
| Decisions involve a choice among alternative courses of action.
| The process used to identify the financial data that change under alternative courses of action is called incremental analysis.
| Costs that are the same under all alternative courses of action sometimes affect the decision.
| When using incremental analysis, some costs will always change under alternative courses of action, but revenues will not.
| Variable costs will change under alternative courses of action, but fixed costs will not.
