Definition Last Updated 17-Dec-2015 12:51

A performance is an activity or behaviour specifically intended to achieve a particular outcome, whether as an objective or a goal. Peformance generalises all intentional transformations; a performance therefore aims to realise capabilities, Functions, Processes, Services, etc.

Any entity that performs a particular behaviour as a necessary part of a given performance is a performer; the behaviour may be voluntary or involuntary.

Anything not a performer (entity or stuff) in a performance is materiel.
