Kovács, S. (2021). COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT METHODS. Economica, 12(3-4). https://doi.org/10.47282/economica/2021/12/3-4/10643

Performance assessment - assessment of the financial and economic performance of companies - is of particular importance both in determining the performance of individual companies and in comparing companies. There are numerous different frameworks and different methods of performance assessment in the scientific literature and in business practice. With the expansion of globalisation and the emergence of a new economy, the focus on this topic is even more prominent. The aim of the present article is to review the literature on performance assessment and to describe two selected frameworks in more detail.
