Abstract

Research question: The purpose of this research was to examine the current field oforganisational performance management and measurement within non-profit sportorganisations. This area of sport management is attracting a large growth in interestfrom the scholarly community and as such it is timely that such a review takes place.Research methods: To conduct this research, an electronic search was adoptedthrough SPORTDiscus and other academic databases to identify relevant studieswithin the field. The studies that met the criteria were those that focused onorganisational performance management or measurement issues in line with definitionsof these theoretical underpinnings described within the paper.Results and findings: Results show a number of studies focusing on variousperformances measurement criteria with fewer studies examining performancemanagement from a more holistic organisational perspective. Moreover, the repetitivemethodologies within the current body of literature, along with other limitations leavesclear gaps for future research to explore and thus facilitating the development of a newlevel of understanding and theory development within this emerging field of sportmanagement research.Implications: A number of management implications such as the relationship betweenorganisational performance and governance and the importance of individualperformance management systems are addressed in the concluding sections of thepaper.Keywords: performance; management; measurement; review; extant literature
