Abstract:     
This paper presents theoretical analysis and longitudinal field-study evidence that the effect of responsibility-center performance measurement and management control system (MCS) boundaries on organizational performance depends on whether organizations have a strategy of continuous or discontinuous organizational process change. Using social psychology theory, we develop a model consisting of three expectations of how continuous or discontinuous organizational process change influences responsibility-center performance measurement and competitive or cooperative MCS boundaries. In turn, these measurements and MCS boundaries have a disordinal interactive effect on responsibility-center managers' revelations of their private knowledge that is needed to identify and extract organization-wide performance gains from the organizational process change. The evidence presented from the longitudinal field study provides support for the theoretical model.
