A detailed examination of tools that managers and investors can use to gauge performance: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/how-long-is-a-piece-of-performance-management
Anthony Hene examines some of the difficulties for clients and managers in gauging performance. What metrics can be helpful, what information is potentially damaging? By using the tools available with case examples, Mr Hene shows the benefits and dangers that a wise investor should be aware of.
Moving away from short-term performance measurement is regularly advocated in finance. However, 'long' does not necessarily mean 'good'. Most theorists believe that the first step towards governance, control and management, whether scientific or commercial or political, is measurement. If we adopt 'long' does that mean we need to drop 'measurement'? If we adopt 'measurement', are we excising the long term? This event will explore suggestions for reforms of long-term measures in finance
