Criticism has indicated that inadequate academic observance has been spent on the adaption and implementation of generic Business Performance Measurement (BPM) models to specific industry and company contexts leading to a suboptimal practical feasibility. In reflecting these concerns, an approach to improve BPM feasibility is developed based on an industry's specific characteristics. These characteristics are then linked to corresponding generic BPM models. In this vein, practitioners shall be assisted in designing and implementing a sustainable BPM system. This approach gets empirically validated for the Metal Finishing Industry in Germany and the United Kingdom. [Subject: Business]

For many years asset management was considered to be a marginal activity, but today, it is central to the development of financial industry throughout the world. Asset management's transition from an "art and craft" to an industry has inevitably called integrated business models into question, favouring specialisation strategies based on cost optimisation and learning curve objectives. This book connects each of these major categories of techniques and practices to the unifying and seminal conceptual developments of modern portfolio theory. In these bear market times, performance evaluation of portfolio managers is of central focus. This book will be one of very few on the market and is by a respected member of the profession. Allows the professionals, whether managers or investors, to take a step back and clearly separate true innovations from mere improvements to well-known, existing techniques Puts into context the importance of innovations with regard to the fundamental portfolio management questions, which are the evolution of the investment management process, risk analysis and performance measurement Takes the explicit or implicit assumptions contained in the promoted tools into account and, by so doing, evaluate the inherent interpretative or practical limits
