MCS is described using Simon�s (1995) levers of control (belief, boundary, interactive control, and diagnostic control).

This study is conducted on 37 limited liability companies in Indonesia by distributing questionnaires in the form of Likert scales to managers. The data is processed using Compare Means One-Way Anova. The results indicate that belief, boundary and interactive control are used to a greater extent in the growth and revival stages, while diagnostic system is used to a greater extent in birth, growth and revival stages. This paper provides information for managers about type of controls are often used in each of the OLC stage, thus managers are able to decide the right MCS in managing the strategy for the company.
