Enterprise Performance Management Cycle II
A comparative index across 8 geographies,10 months on
In February 2009, Quocirca interviewed 800 individuals across 8
geographies for their views on, and usage of, enterprise performance
management (EPM) tools and processes. The research was repeated
in December 2009 and there was a clear improvement in respondents’
understanding of EPM basics. However, much remains to be done,
and the overall increase in the EPM sub-indices does not mean there
is room for complacency. Awareness of how EPM can help an
organisation is growing - however, the capability to use EPM
processes still leaves much to be desired.
Enterprise Performance Management, Cycle II
Enterprise Performance Management -
A comparative index across 8 geographies
Much progress has been made since the first cycle of the EPM Index was carried out in early
2009. However, this progress seems to be around awareness; actual implementation and
integration of the various underlying processes of EPM is still not widespread.
The overall EPM index for the geographies covered is 7.04 out of a maximum score of 10, compared
with 5.13 in cycle I
Whereas this leap in the overall index seems to indicate a massive improvement, other findings show that this
is mainly around the understanding of what EPM is, and how it can help, rather than in actual implementation
of tools and formal processes. Elsewhere, it can be seen how the various processes that underpin and define
effective EPM are still being carried out in isolation.
There has been a major improvement in the belief that the various EPM processes need to be
