This thesis investigates the relationship between performance measures and people in manufacturing organisations. Existing research on performance measurement has concentrated on the strategic importance of measures and the nature of measurement itself. There is little focus on the impact of these measures on people's behaviour, this work has closed this gap by forming a theoretical view of the organisational variables that influence behaviour. The reference model, developed from motivation theories, identifies the critical organisational variables and illustrates how they interact. The variables of primary interest are performance measures, organisational goals and rewards systems, although the importance all of the variables is acknowledged.
