Performance management

The Performance Management research area includes the analysis of factors that influence the economic-financial performance of different organizations including for-profit companies, public utilities, healthcare sector and universities. The determinants that affect the organizations’ performance, such as the governance system (public and private), the level of internationalization of the business, the company innovation, the forms of collaboration, the implementation of sustainable practices and strategic control are investigated. This also includes the analysis of the costs and effectiveness of innovative organizational models, compared to traditional ones. The analysis also considers the measurement systems and tools for planning, reporting and monitoring the level of performance and the influence of various factors on the same. These accounting systems are studied highlighting strengths and weaknesses in representing company performance and being a valid support tool for organizational strategies.
