About the report

The report Performance Management in 2013 is the result of a qualitative research study conducted in the period September 2013 - January 2014, by The KPI Institute. The research study used both primary and secondary sources.


A total of 20 semi-structured interviews with practitioners, academics and consultants from all the continents were conducted via telephone and e-mail in October and November 2013. In order to create a broader image, practitioners from both public and private sector were interviewed. The rich insights received from professionals in the field created a detailed image on the state of Performance Management as a discipline.

Thirty keywords belonging to the Performance Management field at all levels (strategic, operational and individual) were examined using Google AdWords and Google Trends.
