About PMA

The Performance Management Association (PMA) is a global network for those interested in the theory and practice of performance measurement and management. Members of the association come from numerous disciplines and the network comprises academics and practitioners, from a truly international spread.

The PMA was formed in 1998 by its then Chairman, Professor Andy Neely, University of Cambridge. Since then the association has continued to grow and now has over 3,500 members from 30 different countries. Under the guidance of its Board the PMA has hosted cross-disciplinary international biannual conferences, running since 1998, as well as numerous online resources including an active discussion forum and the PMA newsletter. See below for more about the events hosted by the PMA in the past. PMA members also have access to workshops and seminars which are held on an ad hoc basis, organised by members for members. The PMA has an active discussion forum and makes a valued contribution to the field of performance measurement and management. In 2010 saw the launch of the PMA’s first Chapters or regional PMA groups and we have had active conferences run by the PMAA in New Zealand since then.

2014 saw a new direction for the PMA when Prof Mike Bourne from Cranfield University took over the Chair of the association.
