Abstract

Target Costing (TC) is not only seen to be related to product cost reduction. Instead, it includes product quality, functionality and lead time which, to a similar extent, should be seriously considered. Organizational Capabilities (OCs), as a contextual variable, could affect organizational functions when particularly supported by Balanced Scorecard (BSC) perspectives model in relation to TC objectives. The main objective of this study is to assess TC implementation decision and OCs from the perspectives of the BSC model. Four specific research questions are recaptured in this study, which are in tandem with four specific research objectives formulated to support the main objective of the study. The first three specific objectives focus respectively on the business environment influencing TC-related changes, the practical level of TC implementation stages from the perspective of “financial” and “non-financial” OCs measures, and the applicability level of integrating TC indicators within the BSC model. The fourth specific objective examines the effect of OCs on TC implementation decision as well as the extended effect of TC implementation decision on ultimate organizational performance. From the 515 questionnaires distributed, a total of 201 questionnaires were collected and finally, a total of 176 questionnaires were used. The findings showed: First, significant changes were made during the past five years in TC-related aspects including price structure, cost structure, and product structure. Second, the findings showed excellent ability towards TC implementation stages, except for some capabilities that required TC follow-up activities in achieving cost reduction objectives, especially for Car makers as well as when employing the Confrontation strategy…
