Summary One of the misconceptions of the performance movement is the notion that organizations are transformed by having information on how well they are doing. This optimism is rarely justified... It requires sustained political and managerial will to reorient an organization in response to information on what it is doing or hopes to accomplish. In fact, genuine organizational change may be a pre-condition for effective use of performance information. (Schick, 2003)
