Juliana Mulaa Namada, Evans Aosa, Zachary Awino, Gituro Wainaina
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2014.43018

This study sought to establish the relationship between management participation and firm performance. The study was premised in the applauded significant role that management participation plays on firm performance. However, a glaring knowledge gap established from literature review indicate a paucity of empirical support to the extent of the relationship with both the financial and none financial performance. Firms in Export Processing Zones (EPZs) in Kenya were studied. Significant relationship was established only with internal business process performance. Theoretically, the study showed that management participation is a much more complex variable moderated by other factors. Therefore, managers ought to focus on moderating factors like culture and diversity to understand the relationship between management participation and performance.

Ivo Hristov, Antonio Chirico
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2016.411004
Our research focuses on the limits of the Balanced Scorecard. The aim of the work is to provide a basis for in-depth study on the limits of the balanced scorecard. According to Tranfield et al. (2003) [1] we are tackling the topic through a systematic review of the literature. We reviewed articles published in 48 journals, in 3 different subject area of Academic Journal Guide (ABS) 2015: 27 Accounting journals, 17 General Management and Employment Study journals and 4 Strategy journals. This ensured an academic quality of these articles and for each subject area we chose amongst some of the 3, 4 and 4* journals. The contributions of research to the field and the lessons learned from these studies are discussed. Knowledge gaps in existing balanced scorecard research are identified, leading to consideration of several ideas for future research.

Daokui Jiang, Zuankuo Liu
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.29016

The Balanced Scorecard (BSC), a strategic performance management tool, is well received and applied by many world organizations; however government organizations have not really implemented it. Government management issue has no organic relationship with system innovation, institutional reform and transformation of functions. There is a lack of scientific and reasonable performance appraisal indicators for government reform, let alone the improvement of the government management level. The study was carried out to construct the Chinese government performance appraisal system using the BSC method, which mainly in the aspect of financial perspective, customer perspective, internal process perspective and learning and growth perspective. The application and implementation of the BSC can be an important measure of government management innovation, and plays an important role in the process of function transition and administrative system reform.

Journal of Human Resource and Sustainability Studies (JHRSS) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jhrss.2019.72009
Abstract: Performance management practice dates back as one of the critical parts of the human resource management process of any organization which is expected to help the organization make policy level decisions, and program direction and improve to organizational learning. A few organizations have made an attempt to institute a performance management system to assist with assessing work productivity, with findings not used to compare with agreed goal of the organization. Relatively, if the focus of the organization is to deliver public health outcomes, how is performance management a significant step to help the organization shapes its workforce productivity towards achieving on its public health outcomes? What system is in place to enable the performance management process to have a direct impact on public health outcome? This work intends to determine the capacity of public health organizations performance management system in driving work productivity leading to achievement of established public health outcome. A quantitative assessment was conducted using a Performance Management Self-Assessment Tool (PMSAT) developed by Turning Point Performance Management National Excellence Collaborative in 2004 and data collected were analyzed using a statistical tool. The results of the findings revealed a high-level commitment from the leadership, alignment of performance priority areas to the Agency’s mission and the ability of the performance system to measure key areas like health status of personnel, human resource development, financial systems and management practices. However, the current system lacks the capacity to develop its Information and Data System to provide timely reports on performance outcome as well as providing feedback for program and management decision and relationship with clients and stakeholders. In conclusion, it is important to mention that performance management is more than just a process for rewarding employee’s productivity but a tool that helps organizations measure their overall performance based on its employee’s efforts.
Management Performance Evaluation Model of Korean Construction Firms  [PDF]
Donghoon Lee, Manki Kim, Sunkuk Kim
Journal of Building Construction and Planning Research (JBCPR) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jbcpr.2013.12005
Abstract: Corporate management performance evaluation currently focuses on financial aspects; however, it is necessary to identify and manage elements that contribute to increased economic values in the long run. When it comes to construction firms, most previous research did not cover weighting and estimation approaches for non-financial elements that ultimately influence financial status. In this research, the objective is to develop a management performance evaluation model for Korean construction firms. The model includes financial factors and non-financial factors. This research investigated actual data from Korean construction firmsandclassifiedtheir characteristics. This study is performed in two steps. First, this study derives KPIs for performance measurement techniques and weights the KPIs. And then, it applies the performance data of construction firms to the technique. The findings of this study show that Korean construction firms consider customers to be the foremost priority, converse to previous research which argued that the internal business process was the top priority. The performance measurement results can be fed back into strategies and plans to shed light on issues, reflect on management plans for subsequent years and modify mid to long-term strategies. Therefore, the developed model can help decision-makers effectively revise their management plans.
A Multi-Dimensional Analysis of Corporate Social Responsibility: Different Signals in Different Industries  [PDF]
Homayoon Shalchian, Kais Bouslah, Bouchra M’Zali
Journal of Financial Risk Management (JFRM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jfrm.2015.42009
Abstract: This study investigates the relation between individual dimensions of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and financial performance in different industries. Using Kinder, Lydenberg and Domini (KLD) social ratings, we find that investors seem to be more sensitive to the dimension “Environment” in mining and manufacturing sectors while they seem to be more sensitive to the dimension “Employees’ welfare” in the service industry. Our results also suggest that investors perceive an additional financial risk from firm’s irresponsible behavior and consequently, they are more pre-occupied by eventual losses caused by firms’ social irresponsibility than by potential financial gains from corporate social performance.
