Linking Strategy to Operations for Competitive Advantage
Read the Review
Why you should read The Execution Premium
Senior executives love to plan strategies. They believe this puts them in the exalted company of Napoleon, Sun-Tzu and Clausewitz. Indeed, for CEOs and their corporate colleagues, developing strategy is the heart of executive leadership. Unfortunately, most companies end up with strategies that are not linked to their actual operations. The result? Strategy that is not strategic, since companies are unable to implement it. Strategy experts Robert S. Kaplan and David P. Norton created the Balanced Scorecard and Strategy Maps and have now developed a versatile, six-stage program your corporation can use to mesh its strategy with its operations. Their approach already works for numerous top-flight organizations. getAbstract applauds this outstanding book. It is an exceptionally worthwhile read, especially given its valuable case studies. One caveat: Readers who are not grounded in sophisticated, strategic systems, such as Six Sigma and Balanced Scorecard, will be in over their heads starting on page one.
