This is a new section that extends the Control and Controllership Topic but appears to deserve a topic status of its' own. Performance management systems provide a broader more holistic view or extended framework of management control systems than previously presented in the literature. Some of the books and articles with Performance Management in the title are focused on the human resource function as noted below. However, the main focus of this section is on the broader view of performance management systems as a framework that can be used to describe the overall management features of an organization. For example, performance management systems include features such as mission, strategy, organizational structure, performance measures, feedback systems, and rewards.

How strategic performance management is helping companies create business value: The entire organization must be aligned behind the goal of turning the strategic plan into effective action. Strategic Finance (January): 44-49. (Five critical dimensions of performance management: 1. Strategic planning - A strategic business plan that can be cascaded through the organization. 2. Performance measurement - Key measures that indicate if the objectives of the strategic plan are being realized. 3. Integrated business planning - Design and integrate operational planning, budgeting, and forecasting. 4. Management reporting - Provide concise and timely information to management. 5. Organizational culture and reward systems - Create a culture that motivates employees to work together to achieve the company's strategic goals.)

Performance management includes methodologies, metrics, processes, software tools, and systems (e.g., balanced scorecards, Six Sigma, activity-based management) used to manage the performance of an organization. Although performance management is an integrated set of improvement methodologies, it is also a discipline intended to maintain a view of the larger picture and to understand how an organization works as a whole.).
