The title of Magdalena's research thesis is: 'The effects of performance measurement and management systems on organisational performance in high-tech SME's from the Cambridge Cluster.'

Background

Untitled PageMy research focuses on the relationship between performance measurement and management practices and organisational performance in high-tech Small and Medium Sized enterprises. 

Existing research looking at the relationship between performance measurement and management systems (PMMS) and organisational performance has had mixed results. Researchers called for further research to understand this relationship and the factors that affect it.  My research contributes to the body of knowledge that looks at the effects of PMMS on organisational performance by providing insights into how high-tech small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) from the Cambridge Cluster measure and manage performance, and how these practices affect their organisational performance. Furthermore, in line with existing literature, present research also looks at a number of relevant moderating factors: PMMS maturity, the profile of the owner/manager and Entrepreneurial Orientation (EO).  Magdalena's research is supervised by Prof Matthias Fink.
