Abstract: This research examined performance measurement of textile and apparel supply chains in developing countries. The research utilized a two-phase, mixed methods research design. The first phase consisted of field research on the Sri Lankan textile and apparel industry. The second phase collected quantitative data using online surveys and qualitative data using phone interviews. Results indicate that developed and developing countries differ with respect to performance measurement of textile and apparel supply chains. Companies in developed countries are more likely to have a performance measurement system, whereas companies in developing countries are more likely to not have such a system. In addition, results indicate differences between smaller and larger companies. This research defines companies as developing or developed based on location, size, company function, level of sophistication, value-adding activities, and performance measurement. Results from both phases of the research have been utilized to develop a model of performance measurement specific to the textile and apparel industry.
