Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper discusses and disseminates the results of a comparative study conducted by the researchers at Cambridge and Strathclyde, in order to develop a better understanding of the relative merits of their frameworks for performance measurement. The study focuses on a small manufacturing company, which used the process designed by the Cambridge group to design and implement a performance measurement system. The Reference Model developed by the Strathclyde group was then used to audit the company's performance measurement system. The paper concludes that the two approaches are complementary if a business process view of performance measurement is taken.
