Abstract

The objective of this paper is to foster research on recent innovations in performance measurement by providing a rich description of emerging measurement practices and suggesting directions for future research. Using survey data collected by consulting firms and government organizations, we examine three measurement trends: (1) economic value measures, (2) non-financial performance measures and the balanced scorecard, and (3) performance measurement initiatives in government agencies. Existing research on these topics is reviewed and research opportunities are highlighted.
