On the Dynamic Nature of Performance Management Regimes

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

The ambition of this article is to gain a better understanding of the endogenous dynamics of performance management regimes. Based on a review of the literature, we develop a framework that enables us to grasp dimensions and mechanisms of escalation. Hereafter, we demonstrate the use of our framework through two cases. We argue that a range of dimensions of a performance regime may evolve over time, that the dynamics might be repressed by contextual factors and politics, that the dynamics may be reversed leading to de-escalation, and that different dimensions related to the regime do not all necessarily escalate simultaneously.
