Analysing the requirements of performance measurement systems
KTH, School of Industrial Engineering and Management (ITM), Production Engineering.
2005 (English)In: Measuring Business Excellence, ISSN 1368-3047, E-ISSN 1758-8057, Vol. 9, no 4, 46-54 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Purpose - Performance measurement is a subject that has been high on the agenda for over two decades. This article proposes making a contribution to this field by discussing how to deal systematically with all the requirements a performance measurement system (PMS) should fulfil. Design/methodology/approach - Different requirements suggested in the performance measurement literature from the past 20 years have been analysed in order to structure the different tasks to conduct designing a PMS. Findings - The article explains how to separate requirements that can be linked to a PMS and to an individual performance measure. It also suggests three system classes depending on what requirements a PMS fulfils. Finally a three-step procedure is proposed that describes how to evaluate and improve an existing PMS in a company. Practical implications - In practice, it is difficult to deal with numerous requirements simultaneously when designing a PMS. The article supplies measurement practitioners with tools to identify any priority important requirements. Originality/value - Several new ideas to the field of performance measurement are introduced and explained: the concept of system classes, classification of requirements and a simple three-step procedure to evaluate and improve PMS.
