[About the book]

There is a plethora of research findings from management and social science, all offering prescriptions for better performance management. However, the complexities and ambiguities of how performance might be understood in single complex organisations often have multiple causes that discipline approaches may not fully address. This book develops our understanding of performance management from a multi-disciplinary perspective. In so doing it traces the evolution of how performance has come to be understood and explores how we might integrate thinking through inter-disciplinary research, informed by management practice.
