Project description
The research project explores performance measurement systems in hybrid governance and the ways in which metric systems shape decision-making rationalities of hybrid institutions. Hybrid governance covers: - mixed ownership between public and private actors - competing institutional logics between the logic of profit-seeking vis--vis the logic of effectiveness - multiplicity of funding arrangements between the public and private actors - public and private forms of financial and social control The project has three objectives. First, we identify the current state of performance metrics in hybrid settings by investigating systems at three levels: hybrid systems (in the project R&D), hybrid industries (cleantech) and hybrid organizations (health care). Second, we seek novel theorizations of performance metrics in hybrid governance through conceptual reasoning, and through big data analysis. Third, we analyze rationales of uses of performance measurements in hybrid activities.
