Conclusions and Recommendations
- the research showed that companies have not invested as much as expected into the area of e-business performance measurement system. What has been developed appears to be on an ad hoc basis resulting in the conclusions that:
- organisations do not currently feel the need to make major changes to their performance measurement system for e-business; and
- best practice advice in performance measurement may be less influential than that reported as typical.
- Five recommendations are made.
