This data article presents the supplementary material for the paper “A configurational explanation for performance management systems' design in project-based organizations” [1]. The article introduces a dataset on 15 project-based organizations (PBOs) in the management consulting industry in the Netherlands. The dataset includes organization-level conditions at PBOs, such as perceived environmental uncertainty, organizational size, innovation strategy, opportunity strategy, and performance management system design. The dataset is prepared for a fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis (fsQCA). Combinations of conditions are expected to be related to a mechanistic or an organic performance management system design. This article includes the original dataset with quantitative scores and a qualitative motivation for each score, calibrated data, and fsQCA truth tables
