Balance revisited: towards deeply functioning practices for actors and organisations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientific


This essay revisits the concept of balance and seeks to understand balance as a meta-level principle of any management control and performance measurement system. The essay builds a conceptual background for the concept of balance and unveils several perspectives to be taken to achieve balance, i.e., the different perspectives and viewpoints that should be somehow set into purposeful proportions regarding each other. The relevance of revisiting the concept of balance lies in the possibility to form practices that are deeply and sustainably functioning and constructive for different actors, organisations or other entities. This thought is addressed by using a lighthouse metaphor, in this essay.
