Dries has written four books on Performance Management in Dutch.
The first book "Performance Management: from measurement to management through the application of analytical intelligence" clearly responds to a need for literature on quantitative policy support. It was published in 2008.
Meanwhile the book "Best Practices in Performance Management: does it work after all?" was published in 2010.
To meet the need for supportive literature on change management in the implementation of quantitative policy support a third book was published at LannooCampus titled "Systemic Performance Management: with people towards sustainable change" in 2012.
