What started in 2001 as a one-off workshop on performance measurement and management control has become a bi-annual conference gathering, in 2009, close to 200 scholars who presented and discussed more than 110 papers. Just as for the first 4 editions of the conference, some of the papers from the 2009 conference have appeared in a book published by JAI Press (Elsevier Science) .
We will meet again in 2011 to continue to explore and exchange on current research, current corporate practice and future trends in research and practice of performance measurement and management control.
The two invited speakers will review existing research and present their most recent work on management control and performance measurement, particularly related to the theme of this 2011 edition: Advancing Global Practice.
Research papers using a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches are invited on any topic related to the general theme of performance measurement and management control. We are also encouraging submissions from all geographies of the world.
Of particular interest for this edition of the conference will be papers presenting and discussing concepts and practices from various parts of the world. Contributions to improving management practice are coming from all over the world. Cutting edge practices are combining systems adapted to the particular needs of high growth countries as well as a global perspective that leverages knowledge in various parts of the world. Performance measurement and management control are responding to these new management needs with significant changes grounded on information technology progress and flexibility to localize information and incentive needs. The research questions at this stage are numerous, consider for instance: how do performance measurement and control systems compare across different countries? How are multinational companies adapting their systems to local needs? How are start-ups and growth companies going international? What is the impact of the advances in information technology? How is innovation redefining out concept of management control systems?
These local and global needs are emerging in various of the following topics:
• Budgeting and, more generally, target setting
