    Special issue of IJPPM – Performance Measurement & Management in the Third sector

    Deadline for paper submission 31st August 2009

    Call introduction – The International Journal of Productivity and Performance Management aims to address new developments and thinking in productivity science and performance measurement and management including new techniques, approaches and related reflective analysis designed to improve individual, group and organisational performance. It seeks to develop an understanding in and across manufacturing, service and public sector organisations. The journal aims to be multi-disciplinary drawing from, amongst others, the fields of Operations, Marketing, Accounting, Supply Chain and Organisational Behaviour.
    The Third Sector includes non government and non profit making organisations such as charities, trade associations, credit unions and voluntary organisations. In addition the third sector also includes Social Enterprises which reinvest their profits back into the community. Their aim is to accomplish targets that are social and environmental as well as financial which is often referred to as having a triple bottom line. Social enterprises are profit-making businesses set up to tackle a social or environmental need. This call invites you to discuss the importance of the Third sector in terms of contribution to the economies of the developed countries. This is an emerging area which presents itself with an opportunity to add to the body of knowledge in this field of performance measurement/management.
    Potential themes, but not limited to: (in no particular order)
    • Empirical research within third sector context
    • Third Sector case studies on performance measurement/management
    • Performance frameworks appropriate for third sector organisations
    • Comparative research between public, private and third sector organisations
