Notes
  • Although measuring the performance of a firm's R&​D activities is a very challenging task, the critical role played by R&​D in creating and sustaining a firm's competitive advantage has raised the need to adopt appropriate performance measurement systems (PMSs) in R&​D units. Therefore, management scholars have been studying this issue and PMSs have diffused in the R&​D departments of most R&​D-intensive companies. Nevertheless, empirical investigations into the diffusion and practical use of PMSs in R&​D units mainly concern Anglo-Saxon countries, where R&​D information disclosure requirements have been in place for a long time. The purpose of this paper is to study the diffusion and practical use of PMSs in the R&​D units of firms that are not subject to these types of external institutional influences. With this aim, the results of a survey on the R&​D performance measurement practices adopted by a sample of Italian R&​D-intensive firms are discussed. They allow to understand why and how R&​D-intensive companies design and use a PMS in their R&​D units for managerial purposes.
