second edition of the EIASM workshop on performance measurement and
management control was a great success. Over 120 scholars participated in the
workshop, 54 papers were presented, some of which later appeared in a book
published by JAI Press (Elsevier Science) in the US and Europe* . In light of the success of this second workshop, and to continue to
explore and exchange on these issues, a third edition of the workshop will
take place in 2005.
As in the first edition, the workshop will be focused broadly on performance measurement and management controlE But we also want to give this third workshop a
particular emphasis on methods and approaches that are associated with the role of performance measurement and management
control in improving organizations and society, defined broadly.
In the last conference, we focused on superior organizational performance.
But, is there also a large ignored cost in the pursuit of this performance?
Do our management control and performance measurement systems drive the short
termism that is often criticized? Do the pressure to perform and the
increased number of initiatives in organizations push people too hard and are
there ways to redesign management control and performance measurement systems
to improve the quality of life both within and outside corporations?
This workshop will provide a full exploration of the current research on
these topics, as well as an opportunity to discuss current research, current
corporate practice and future trends in research and practice.
The two invited speakers will present their most recent work on management
control and performance measurement. This will include an update on the
current research in the field and extensive discussion of business practices
and trends in these areas.

are invited to present their research, provide a formal discussion of papers
presented by other participants, or simply, participate in discussions. The
benefit of participating is to present and get feedback on one's own
research, to be at the forefront of the research in the field, and to discuss
the current issues in research and practice of performance measurement and
using a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches are invited on
any topic related to the general theme of performance measurement and
management control. This includes, but is not limited to, the following
Budgets and Targets
* Incentive and Compensation Systems
* Balanced Scorecard
* Shareholder Value Analysis
* Drivers of Corporate Performance and Value Creation
* Alternative Measures of Corporate Performance
* Challenges in the Implementation of Corporate Strategy
* Use of Non-Financial Performance Metrics
* Public Sector and Performance Measurement

* Use of Management Control and Performance Measurement Systems in Different
Sectors, Different Countries and Different Cultures
* Using Management Control to Change Corporate Culture
* Impact of Management Control and Performance Evaluation Systems on Employees

* Implications of e-commerce on management control
related to any of these topics, broadly defined, are welcome. Of particular interest for this edition of the
workshop will be papers attempting to relate their subject to the role of
performance measurement and management control in improving organizations and
society. This link can be examined from several angles,
- Is there a downside from searching for ever better
- Is what is good for organizations also good for
individuals and for society?
- Are companies pushing the profit imperative too hard
and are the management control and performance measurement systems
leading to long term harm in organizations, individuals, and society?
- What is the impact on organizations, people, and
society by increasing the pressure on people to be high performance?
- Does this increase or decrease the quality of life of
individuals and society?
- Is management accounting and management control
improving society through this increased focus on improving financial
- Does the emphasis on new performance measurement and
performance management systems increase the quality of life in society?
- Do our performance measurement systems measure the
right things to benefit the quality of life of the various stakeholders
or only the financial performance of the corporation?
