A six-stage plan for your corporation
Senior executives love to plan strategies. Unfortunately, most companies end up with strategies that are not linked to their actual operations.
Strategy experts Robert S. Kaplan and David P. Norton created the Balanced Scorecard and Strategy Maps and have now developed a versatile, six-stage programme your corporation can use to mesh its strategy with its operations. GetAbstract applauds this outstanding book.
One caveat: Readers not grounded in strategic systems will be in over their heads.
