By using the best evidence synthesis (Slavin, 1995), the authors want to find out an accurate synthesis on the Budgetary Participation -BP- and Managerial Performance-PM- link. The use of criteria of selection has allowed to decrease the heterogeneity. The results explain the presence of the heterogeneity by cultural and industrial contingencies. The best evidence synthesis based on an homogeneous subgroup (managers in publicly traded firms in Taiwan Stock Exchange) shows a time dependency of BP-MP link and some recommendations for further research: to continue the study of the traded firms in Taiwan Stock Exchange to analyse the causal BP-PM link with a Granger test and to study the evolution of this link over time in other countries.
