Performance Management

PM is a strategic management approach for monitoring how a business is performing. It describes the methodologies, metrics, processes, systems and software which are used for monitoring and managing the business performance of an enterprise. Business Performance Management, and Strategic Performance Management, and Enterprise Performance Management and Corporate Performance Management are all variations of the terminology.

Benefits of Performance Management

Main benefits of CPM are:

  • PM helps to maximize value creation consistently.
  • PM helps to increase corporate transparency.
  • PM facilitates communication with investors, analysts and with stakeholders.
  • PM improves internal communication on strategy.
  • PM facilitates the improvement of decision-making.
  • PM helps to balance short-term, middle-term, and long-term trade-offs.
  • PM encourages value-creating investments.
  • PM improves the allocation of resources, streamlines planning and budgeting.
  • PM helps to better deal with increased complexity and greater uncertainty and risk.
