The control system is an important area in the company. The control system is defined as all procedures and formal systems that use information to maintain or alter patterns of organizational activity (Simons, 1987). Control systems associated with goal achievement as measured strategy of organizational performance (Anthony and Vijay G., 1998).
Previous research showed that the implementation of effective organizational control system will provide a significant impact on performance improvement. However, the relationship is not directly so, but there are contextual factors (eg environmental uncertainty (perceived environtmental uncertainty (PEU)) which exist in the relationship between control systems with the organization’s performance (VK Chong, 1996). The argument that supports such a proposition is the existence the fact that the environment is an important contextual factors that have a strong impact on firm performance. Furthermore, in terms of contingencies stated that organizational effectiveness is a function of fit (fitness) between organizational structure and environment in which these organizations operate (Duncan and Ken Moores, 1989).
