This paper reports on an investigation of Performance Management (PM) in the Nigerian public health sector highlighting how the interrelated social systems - national, sectoral and organisational - influence practice. An interpretivist philosophy and abductive reasoning were adopted using two case studies, hospitals owned by the Nigerian Federal Government. Thematic analysis of data from forty semi-structured interviews was conducted using NVivo. Findings suggest how these social systems influence the practice of PM within the study, the implications of which are discussed for performance management in this context and with suggestions for future research.
