Responding to the increasing changes in technology through the proliferation of globalisation, a range of management accounting innovations (MAIs) have emerged. Concerning these MAIs, researchers have put forward alternative views ranging from rational-economic perspectives to social-organisational process perspectives which explore more dynamic consequences of MAIs including how MAIs are adopted and implemented differently in different organisational settings. This paper contributes to the latter and discusses the network view and subsidiaries capabilities both absorptive and combinative in diffusion of MAIs in group organisations and identifies four possible sources of diffusion of MAIs which have not been discussed in the literature.
