Event description

Description

The objective of BRICMAR, which is now based at the University of Bristol, is to provide a forum for engagement between the management accounting practice and research communities. We are relaunching BRICMAR with an afternoon workshop that will consider the following question.



What are the challenges of strategic performance management and how can I address these challenges in my organisation?



This half-day workshop will consider the challenges associated with designing and implementing a strategic performance management system. We will hear from designers and users of the strategic performance management system implemented in Tesco, called The Big 6. The Big 6 replaced the well-publicised Steering Wheel and comprises six business performance measures. It is underpinned by one belief: if you give employees more power to choose the right actions, they will do a much better job for customers and as a business, you will achieve greater success. In the first half of the workshop, the reasons for, and challenges of, designing and implementing The Big 6 will be introduced, followed by a users’ perspective of the new system. In the second part of the workshop, participants are invited to explore the potentials and challenges of strategic performance management in their own organisational contexts in discussion groups facilitated by members of the Management Accounting Research Group at the University of Bristol. Each participant is asked to prepare in advance a summary of the biggest challenge and greatest success of their organisation’s strategic performance management system to share with other group participants. We will conclude with a perspective on discussions during the workshop in relation to the management accounting literature, followed by a drinks reception.
