The Performance Measurement Association (PMA) is a global network for those interested in the theory and practice of performance measurement and management - Historically the PMA has hosted cross-disciplinary international biannual conferences, running since 1998. Also workshops and seminars are held on an ad hoc basis, organised by members for members. The PMA has an active discussion forum and makes a valued contribution to the field of performance measurement and management. The principal roles of the PMA are: * To encourage the development of a multi-disciplinary community centred around performance measurement and management * To provide networking opportunities for members of that community so that individuals can better understand the research that has been undertaken into the field of performance measurement and management on a worldwide basis. * To facilitate the exchange of information and ideas about theory and practice in the emerging field of performance measurement and management. * To encourage the exchange and joint development of teaching and education materials designed for practitioners in the field of performance measurement and management. * To enable the rapid transfer of ideas, concepts and insights in the field of performance measurement and management from academia to business and vice-versa.
This is one of my favourite resources for visual analysis, which is so critical in the presenting or reporting phase of performance measurement. Too often we see people displaying performance measures using very ineffective (and ugly) graphs, like pie charts or stacked bar charts. Stephen Few's advice is practical and really does transform the design of dashboards and graphics so our performance measures can tell their true story.
