Church Management - Oxymoron?

I have just accepted a position on a committee for our church board. I have been appointed for my management expertise. The committee is looking at some specific issues that need to be resolved, and I can see why my management skills will be needed and used.
My question is this; how much of business management can be translated into church management?
Should we manage churches in the same manner as businesses, that is, is the accountability and reporting structure used in business the same? Are KPI's really necessary in a church environment and if so, should they be what a pastor's performance is measured on?
Real Live Preacher makes this interesting by demonstrating the soft side to church in his post All the Right Questions
It will be interesting applying business management processes to the church structure. I am sure I will learn a lot.
