Performance Measurement and Management
12th PMA conference 13th to 16th September 2020
Professor Paula van Veen-Dirks, University of Groningen
Professor Mike Bourne, Cranfield University
The next PMA conference is to be held at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands between Sunday 13th and Wednesday 16th September 2020.
Performance measurement and management has a long history in both the academic and practitioner literatures, but in this conference, we will be focusing on the use and issues with performance measurement and management in dynamic environments. Dynamic environments create particular issues around speed of response, flexibility and data management. There are also the thorny problems of control, use of information and delegation, which are usually exacerbated in dynamic environments. Organisations that can’t keep pace with change will suffer and ultimately not survive. So the performance measurement and management issues are at the heart of management in our fast changing world.
We are a multi-disciplinary conference, at the intersection of strategy execution, operations, management accounting and control and HR practices. Further we are interested in the application of our work, so fascinated by developments in practice and the practical implications of academic research.
In this conference we would like to see papers addressing the topic of performance measurement and management (PMM) in dynamic environments and particularly (but not exclusively) papers on:
We are interested in papers reporting work across the private and public sector as well as not for profit organisations and social enterprises. We expect papers from a wide variety of academic disciplines and from practitioners who are aware of the wider field and have contributions to make in terms of new developments in practice or useful experiences of what does and doesn’t work. We are interested in conceptual papers, case and field research, action research, experimental research, archival research and survey based research that contributes to our understanding of the field.
Closing date for papers 30th April 2020
