A clearer, more accurate performance management strategy Over the past two decades, performance measurement has profoundly changed societies, organizations and the way we live and work. We can now access incredible quantities of data, display, review and report complex information in real time, and monitor employees and processes in detail. But have all these investments in collecting, analysing and reporting data helped companies, governments and people perform better? Measurement Madness is an engaging read, full of anecdotes so peculiar you'll hardly believe them. Each one highlights a performance measurement initiative that went wrong, explains why and – most importantly – shows you how to avoid making the same mistake yourself. The dangers of poorly designed performance measurement are numerous, and even the best how-to guides don't explain how to avoid them. Measurement Madness fills in the gap, showing how to ensure you’re measuring the right things, rewarding the behaviours that deserve rewarding, and interpreting results in a way that will improve things rather than complicate them. This book will help you to recognize, correct and even avoid common performance measurement problems, including: Measuring for the sake of measuring Assuming that measurement is an instant fix for performance issues Comparing sets of data that have nothing in common and hoping to learn something Using targets and rewards to promote certain behaviours, and achieving exactly the opposite ones. Reading Measurement Madness will enable you to design a simple, effective performance measurement system, which will have the intended result of creating value in your organization.

CEOs and managers live and die by delivering superior performance to shareholders. This is why expectations-based management has been developed. Outperform with Expectations-Based Management (EBM) introduces a revolutionary new performance metric that links performance standards, performance measurement, and the achievement of performance. It's easy to say that if a CEO can get performance measurement right, then performance improvement will follow. But what is the «right» measure of performance, and how do you use it to improve performance? Authors Tom Copeland and Aaron Dolgoff answer these questions and many more, as they show you how to find the measure of performance that has the strongest link to the creation of wealth for the owners of both public and private companies. They answer the puzzle of why growth in earnings is not correlated with shareholder returns and explain the under- and over-investment traps. And they explain how clear communications to investors and managers alike improve value. The bottom line is that share prices go up when companies exceed expectations – short-term and long-term – of income statement and balance sheet performance and daily operating value drivers. Gain a complete understanding of EBM and discover how to do this, and much more, while staying competitive in an unforgiving business environment.

Dennis Schlegel Subsidiary Controlling with Strategically Aligned Performance Measurement Systems

Due to the growing importance and complexity of company groups and a proceeding decentralisation, subsidiary controlling is becoming more and more important. Performance measurement systems are a key instrument of subsidiary controlling. The correct use of performance measures combined with the right incentives can help reduce information asymmetry between the corporate centre and subsidiaries and at the same time ensure an orientation toward corporate objectives on all levels.In this book, the concept of performance measurement systems in the context of subsidiary controlling is explained. One focus is the thorough discussion of financial performance measures and their use in subsidiary controlling. Particularities in subsidiary controlling are for instance the determination of divisional cost-of-capital for value-based management and the aggregation of measures to the corporate level.The second focus is the design of performance measurement systems depending on certain characteristics of the company and its environment. It is emphasised that there is not one right way of designing controlling systems. Instead, they have to be aligned to certain situational variables such as strategy, organisational structure or environmental uncertainty. For example, managers of business units that pursue differentiation strategies should be evaluated by more non-financial performance measures than managers of business units with a low-cost strategy.The book can be used as guidance for prac...

Seitz Michael Supply Chain Performance, Collaboration and Stability Measurement

Revision with unchanged content. Companies are competing in fast changing markets, characterised by high levels of variety and competition. Therefore they need two capabilities: the capability to understand their markets in terms of market drivers and market trends; and secondly the capability of a company and its supply chain to respond in a timely yet efficient manner. Managing such supply chains will be difficult without some degree of process integration and collaboration between supply chain partners. A first step is to know their own and that of their suppliers' performance capability. Michael Seitz's work was about constructing a performance measurement tool to identify the operational performance between adjacent members of a supply chain. The SCOR model was used as the basis of the Performance Measurement System. This was extended to include a Collaborative Index, an additional measurement which could assess the levels of supply chain integration and collaboration, and a Stability Index, which was developed to measure the robustness of the evaluated supply chain. This book is interesting for students and decision makers working in the area of supply chain who want to gain a deeper knowledge about measuring supply chain performance.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich BWL - Controlling, Note: 2,0, Universität Siegen, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die richtigen ‚measures', also Kennzahlen, zu finden, gestaltet sich in der Praxis deutlich schwieriger als gedacht. Da jedes Unternehmen seine eigene Philosophie verfolgt und sich durch ihm eigene prägende Merkmale auszeichnet, lässt sich keine allgemein gültige Regel bzw. kein allgemein gültiges Programm zur Findung oder Entwicklung der passenden Kennzahlen nennen. Das Performance Measurement System Design muss vielmehr auf jede Firma ganz speziell zugeschnitten werden.Ziel dieser Seminararbeit ist es, diesen Prozess des Performance Measurement System Design näher zu beleuchten und die einzelnen Schritte inner-halb des Prozesses zu identifizieren.Zu Beginn werden einige Definitionen zum Thema Performance Measurement aufgeführt und verschiedene Anwendungsbereiche für Performance Measurement Systeme kurz aufgelistet, um damit einen Einstieg zu finden und einen ersten Überblick zu gewinnen.Danach werden zur Verdeutlichung dessen einige Performance Measurement Systeme mit ihren Stärken und Schwächen vorgestellt, sowohl traditionelle wie beispielsweise der ‚Return On Investment' als auch neuere wie z.B. die ‚Balanced Scorecard'.Der Kern dieser Seminararbeit befasst sich mit dem Entwicklungsprozess von Performance Measurement Systemen.

Essay from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Controlling, grade: 1,0, Åbo Akademi Universität, Finnland ( Åbo Akademi Universität, Finnland, Department of Business Studies), course: Essay on Accounting, 123 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: A lot of particularly big companies are nowadays in the position to provide comprehensive information about critical business processes to decision-makers nearly in real-time with low additional efforts. Information about those processes can be traced through information technology, aggregated and analyzed and used for management decision-making. Still these possibilities are not fully recognized and realized. Aim of this work is therefore to examine the thesis that direct activity/process information must be taken into stronger account for management control and that the management accounting system must adopt the changing organizational and environmental realities by developing and implementing mechanisms to model the process perspective and integrating process information. The integration of process information enhances continuous improvement by providing up-to-date, and easy to understand and interpret measures on the local level that forces immanent response and leads to actions based on observable derivations from defined process objectives.After essential definitions about Management Accounting, Performance Measurement, and Business Process Management criticism on traditional performance measu...

This issue focuses on connections between performance management and evaluation, a contentious topic at the moment. It does so by placing evaluation and monitoring under the overarching concept of performance management, and then by investigating five complementarities between performance monitoring and measurement on the one hand, and evaluation on the other. These complementarities are: Sequential Informational Organizational Methodical Hierarchical. Several case studies discuss the uses and complementarities of evaluation and performance management in contexts including national and local governments and the work of government, philanthropic foundations, and a direct-service nonprofit agency. These cases illustrate the advantages and pitfalls in utilizing evaluative approaches within the context of performance management. This is the 137th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Evaluation, an official publication of the American Evaluation Association.

Marcus Wagner Consistency and Credibility.

Consistency and Credibility? identifies in its first part the extent of correlation between actual environmental performance, the use of physical environmental performance indicators and corporate environmental reporting in the paper and electricity industries in Germany and the UK. The results suggest environmental performance is mainly country-related, possibly due to differences in environmental legislation. This implies that any assessment of the relationship between environmental and economic performance of firms needs to be based on actual environmental performance data and cannot take reporting quality or information about the intensity of use of specific tools, such as environmental performance indicators as a proxy variable. The second part of the book therefore analyses the relationship between environmental and economic performance. Based on the results, the book's second part concludes that for firms in environmentally-intensive industries it is difficult to create a positive link between their environmental and economic performance, and that market settings as well as strategy considerations both can have an effect, but situational aspects determine which of these dominates.Consistency and Credibility? provides useful information for practitioners as well as deeper insights for academics about the link of environmental reporting and environmental performance measurement and how this interacts with economic success. It thus reveals valuable strategic insights ...

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Controlling, grade: 1,7, Technical University of Braunschweig (Institut für Controlling und Unternehmensführung), course: Performance Measurement, language: English, abstract: Encouraged by an increasing globalization, the car manufacturing industry expanded to growing markets such as China, which is with about a demand of 19.3 million vehicles in 2013 the biggest market in the world. Due to the different habits of customers' worldwide and changing laws there is a high demand for innovations of alternative fuel vehicles, lightweight materials and connectivity. In order to provide alternative mobility concepts, efficient and comprehensive technology, the European car manufacturing industry invested over 32 billion Euros into Research and Development (R&D) in 2012. This investment is around 25% of the total R&D spending in the European Union. These investments demonstrate the importance of developing new products in the car manufacturing industry to obtain a competitive position in the global market. To ensure the profitability of developing projects it is important to keep balance between creativity during the innovation process and costs. Controlling helps the management to keep this balance and to measure the performance of new development projects. Therefore, performance measurement can be used.

Christian Biewald Development of a supply chain performance measurement system

Master's Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: 1,3, University of Applied Sciences Kempten, language: English, abstract: The goal of this master thesis is to provide an analysis of existing supply chain performance measurement systems as well as an evaluation of their suitability for the electronics manufacturing industry. Furthermore, the hypothesis that the implementation of a supply chain performance measurement system in cooperation with supply chain partners will lead to sustainable competitive advantages within the supply chain is going to be proven. As competitiveness in future industry will be increasingly "supply chain vs. supply chain", rather than "firm vs. firm", holistic performance measurement systems become more and more relevant to global operating companies (Hult, 2008, p.538). Although the efficient management of global supply chain networks already has the potential to create competitive advantages, most industrial companies still focus on production efficiency and selective optimization that disable fast adaption to changing customer requirements. In increasingly saturated markets a technology-driven competitive advantage is often quickly compensated by low-cost countries. In contrast high service quality established by efficient logistics processes can hardly be adopted in short time (Richert, 2006, p.44). Especially in the areas of fast moving consumer goods and the electro...

Duaa Abu Hamde Performance measurement in palestinian companies. The use of the balanced scorecard (BSC) method by private firms operating in Ramallah

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, , language: English, abstract: This study aims to investigate the usage of performance measures, conceptualized as the BSC measures, within an organizational context.This research considers itself as a descriptive research. The questionnaire was distributed to 46 private Palestinian firms operating in Ramallah from different sectors. The results revealed that the usage of financial measures is still high and ranked first among the four perspectives of the BSC measures. However, the usage of non-financial measures is growing. Only reliance on financial based performance measures is inadequate in the new manufacturing environment. Increase awareness of the importance of non financial performance measures in providing long-term value creation and long-term strategic focus as well as their effects on firm performance leads to several innovations in the area of performance measurement system. One of the widely known innovations in this area is called balanced scorecard (BSC) which has been originated by Kaplan and Norton in 1992. The BSC combines traditional financial measures with non-financial measures through focusing on four perspectives - financial, customers, internal business processes, and learning and growth.

What Mathematics Do Students Know and How is that Knowledge Changing. Evidence from the National Assessment of Educational Progress

This volume is intended for researchers, curriculum developers, policy makers, and classroomteachers who want comprehensive information on what students at grades 4, 8, and 12 (the gradesassessed by NAEP) can and cannot do in mathematics. After two introductory chapters on thedesign of NAEP, the volume contains a chapter on the challenges in analyzing NAEP data at theitem level followed by five chapters that report 2005 through 2013 student performance on specificassessment items. These chapters are organized by content area and then by topic (e.g., understanding of place value, knowledgeof transformations, ability to use metric and U.S. systems of measurement) and thus provide baseline data on the proportion ofstudents who are able to complete the mathematics tasks currently used in the upper elementary, middle, and high‐schoolmathematics curriculum. Additional chapters focus on student reasoning, U.S. performance on international assessments, andusing construct analysis rather than percent correct on clusters of items to understand student knowledge on specific mathematicstopics.Several themes emerge from the volume. One is that while the rate of improvement in mathematics learning in grades 4 and 8 hasslowed in recent years, it has slowed more on some topics than others. Another is that relatively minor changes in wording can havesignificant effects on student performance and thus it is difficult to be specific about what students can do without knowing exactlywhat questio...

Streamline KPIs to craft a simpler, more effective system of performance measurement Key Performance Indicators provides an in-depth look at how KPIs can be most effectively used to assess and drive organizational performance. Now in its third edition, this bestselling guide provides a model for simplifying KPIs and avoiding the pitfalls ready to trap the unprepared organization. New information includes guidance toward defining critical success factors, project leader essentials, new tools including worksheets and questionnaires, and real-world case studies that illustrate the practical application of the strategies presented. The book includes a variety of templates, checklists, and performance measures to help streamline processes, and is fully supported by the author’s website to provide even more in-depth information. Key Performance Indicators are a set of measures that focus on the factors most critical to an organization’s success. Most companies have too many, rendering the strategy ineffective due to overwhelming complexity. Key Performance Indicators guides readers toward simplification, paring down to the most fundamental issues to better define and measure progress toward goals. Readers will learn to: separate out performance measures between those that can be tied to a team and result in a follow-up phone call (performance measures) and those that are a summation of a number of teams working together (result indicators) look for and eradicate those measures that have a damaging unintended consequence, a major darkside Sell a KPI project to the Board, the CEO, and the senior management team using best practice leading change techniques Develop and use KPIs effectively with a simple five stage model Ascertain essential performance measures, and develop a reporting strategy Learn the things that a KPI project leader needs to know A KPI project is a chance at a legacy – the project leader, facilitator, or coordinator savvy enough to craft a winning strategy can affect the organization for years to come. KPI projects entail some risk, but this book works to minimize that risk by arming stakeholders with the tools and information they need up front. Key Performance Indicators helps leaders shape a performance measurement initiative that works.

Yohannes Hailu Mehari Practices and Problems of Performance Management Teachers

The issue of performance management has not been a popular concept on schools. It seems that performance appraisal or evaluations are widely used terms in assessing the performance of teachers. However, these days the issue of performance management that focuses mainly on the professional development of teachers becomes agenda in most education system. However, limited academic literature exists on how to best-practiced performance management of teachers.Various approaches of performance measurement of teachers have been used and most of them emphasized on controlling mechanisms. Issues like feedback, motivation and communications with teachers in performance appraisal are not areas of attention. This book, therefore, provides distinctly different approaches of Performance evaluation that mainly emphasize on developing the performance of teachers rather than controlling. As a result, five interrelated dimensions of performance management are analyzed. The analysis should help shade some light on the performance management of teachers in Ethiopia, and should be especially useful to professional in education fields, or anyone else who may be interested in school affairs.

A multidisciplinary reference of engineering measurement tools, techniques, and applications «When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meager and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the stage of science.» – Lord Kelvin Measurement is at the heart of any engineering and scientific discipline and job function. Whether engineers and scientists are attempting to state requirements quantitatively and demonstrate compliance; to track progress and predict results; or to analyze costs and benefits, they must use the right tools and techniques to produce meaningful data. The Handbook of Measurement in Science and Engineering is the most comprehensive, up-to-date reference set on engineering and scientific measurements—beyond anything on the market today. Encyclopedic in scope, Volume 3 covers measurements in physics, electrical engineering and chemistry: Laser Measurement Techniques Magnetic Force Images using Capacitive Coupling Effect Scanning Tunneling Microscopy Measurement of Light and Color The Detection and Measurement of Ionizing Radiation Measuring Time and Comparing Clocks Laboratory-Based Gravity Measurement Cryogenic Measurements Temperature-Dependent Fluorescence Measurements Voltage and Current Transducers for Power Systems Electric Power and Energy Measurement Chemometrics for the Engineering and Measurement Sciences Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy Measurements of Nitrotyrosine-Containing Proteins Fluorescence Spectroscopy X-Ray Absorption Spectroscopy Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy Near Infrared (NIR) Spectroscopy Nanomaterials Properties Chemical Sensing Vital for engineers, scientists, and technical managers in industry and government, Handbook of Measurement in Science and Engineering will also prove ideal for academics and researchers at universities and laboratories.

Handbook on Restructuring and Substantial School Improvement (PB)

As suggested by the title, the purpose of this Handbook on Restructuring and Substantial School Improvement is to provide principles for restructuring and substantially improving schools. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, the Center on Innovation & Improvement (CII) engaged leading experts on restructuring and school improvement to prepare modules for this handbook to assist states, districts, and schools in establishing policies, procedures, and support to successfully restructure schools. The Handbook is organized into three sections.The topic of the Handbook's modules - restructuring with a focus on the district as the impetus for dramatic improvement - is relatively new in the nation's education history. For this reason, the module authors were selected because they are highly experienced experts in their fields and can be counted on to judiciously weigh the less than definitive evidence and to state useful guiding principles.
