Abstract

Performance Measurement System (PMS) is an important and effective mechanism to ensure managers' performance is in line with the objectives of an organisation. Positive effects of PMS on organisation performance are supported by empirical research but the study on contemporary elements of PMS especially in an education setting is still lacking. Previous studies on PMS dimensions tend to focus on a single construct. This study aims to examine the existence of strategic, comprehensive and dynamic dimensions in university PMS. Cross-sectional data were obtained from academic staff representing five research universities in Malaysia (N = 368). Exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis using Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) demonstrates that strategic, comprehensive and dynamic elements exist in university PMS. The findings from this study contribute to the line of research in the area of PMS design. Practically, the findings can be used as a guideline by universities in designing the PMS.
