Management control (MC) elements, such as performance measures and procedures, can motivate employees to act in line with the organizational goals. Although examining MC elements as an interconnected ‘MC package’ has the potential to make significant contributions to ongoing debates, to date this approach is largely absent in the public sector literature. This paper reviews the MC package literature, examines its implications for public sector research and practice, and aids future research by discussing research design choices and research directions.
