ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the subversion of the management controls of Enron and suggests the lessons managers can learn from the financial collapse of the company. It is believed that the financial collapse of Enron offered the same sort of opportunity for reflection for the business sector as the Challenger disaster did for the engineering profession or the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks for political scientists. It claims that the company existed with a highly effective management control system and governance system, which are seldom recognized.
