The balanced scorecard : translating strategy into action by Robert S Kaplan( Book )
113 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in 12 languages and held by 2,623 libraries worldwide
"Here is the book - by the recognized architects of the Balanced Scorecard - that shows how managers can use this revolutionary tool to mobilize their people to fulfill the company's mission. More than just a measurement system, the Balanced Scorecard is a management system that can channel the energies, abilities, and specific knowledge held by people throughout the organization toward achieving long-term strategic goals. Kaplan and Norton demonstrate how senior executives in industries such as banking, oil, insurance, and retailing are using the Balanced Scorecard both to guide current performance and to target future performance. They show how to use measures in four categories - financial performance, customer knowledge, internal business processes, and learning and growth - to align individual, organizational, and cross-departmental initiatives and to identify entirely new processes for meeting customer and shareholder objectives. The authors also reveal how to use the Balanced Scorecard as a robust learning system for testing, gaining feedback on, and updating the organization's strategy. Finally, they walk through the steps that managers in any company can use to build their own Balanced Scorecard. The Balanced Scorecard provides the management system for companies to invest in the long term - in customers, in employees, in new product development, and in systems - rather than managing the bottom line to pump up short-term earnings. It will change the way you measure and manage your business"--

Drawing from more than twenty in-depth case studies - including Mobil, CIGNA, Nova Scotia Power, and AT & T Canada - Kaplan and Norton illustrate how Balanced Scorecard adopters have taken their groundbreaking tool to the next level. These organizations have used the scorecard to create an entirely new performance management framework that puts strategy at the center of key management processes and systems."--Jacket

Time-driven activity-based costing : a simpler and more powerful path to higher profits by Robert S Kaplan( Book )
28 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 452 libraries worldwide
In the classroom, activity-based costing (ABC) looks like a great way to manage a company's limited resources. But executives who have tried to implement ABC in their organizations on any significant scale have often abandoned the attempt in the face of rising costs and employee irritation. Time-Driven Activity-Based Costing is the solution to the problems associated with large-scale ABC implementation. In this book, Kaplan and Anderson offer a revised model where managers can estimate the resource demands imposed by each transaction, product, or customer, rather than rely on time-consuming and costly employee surveys. In their new model, Kaplan and Anderson focus on the two parameters managers need to estimate: how much it costs per time unit to supply resources to the business activities (the total overhead expenditure of a department divided by the total number of minutes of employee time available) and how much time it takes to carry out one unit of each kind of activity (as estimated or observed by the manager). Rather than endlessly updating and maintaining ABC data, this book with allow managers to spend their time addressing the deficiencies the model reveals: inefficient processes, unprofitable products and customers, and excess capacity. Kaplan and Anderson lead the discussion of Time-Driven ABC in the first seven chapters, followed by individual cases studies of actual implementations by Acorn consultants in diverse settings

Strategy maps : der Weg von immateriellen Werten zum materiellen Erfolg by Robert S Kaplan( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in German and held by 99 libraries worldwide
Der Trend setzt sich fort. Mit Strategy Maps kann das Balanced-Scorecard-System noch wirkungsvoller eingesetzt werden. Wie funktioniert das? Die Strategy Maps entwickeln Ursache-Wirkungs-Ketten. Sie legen offen, welche strategischen Entscheidungen zu welchen messbaren Ergebnissen führen. Strategy Maps beruhen auf einer einfachen Philosophie: Man kann nur umsetzen, was man messen kann. Man kann nur messen, was man beschreiben kann. In der Praxis helfen die Strategy Maps, verständlich zu kommunizieren. Die Strategy Maps zeichnen den Ablaufplan auf, nach dem die Zielvorgaben umgesetzt werden sollen. Sie bieten eine ideale Unterstützung, weil immaterielle Vermögenswerte wie das Human-, Informations- und Organisationskapital in die Strategie eingebunden werden müssen. Das Konzept der Erfolgsautoren Kaplan und Norton ist ein Meilenstein für die strategische Unternehmensführung
