Performance management in lean organisations – what actually works?

Research Briefing

Keywords: Performance management, lean, lean manufacturing, lean organisations, management control,

Lean principals of manufacture and the notion of performance management are practices that have developed and spread between organisations, both within the manufacturing sectors and outside of it. Both ‘lean’ and ‘performance management’ have become areas of significant focus operationally, strategically, and in terms of research activity.

However, hitherto few studies have looked at the connections between both lean and performance management and they have been treated as separate entities. This means that there has been little research and consideration about how performance management operates and what its outcomes are in a lean environment. It is important to look at the links between lean operating and what creates superior performance in organisations.
