The balanced scorecard : translating strategy into action by Robert S Kaplan( Book )
71 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 2,282 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"--

"In The Strategy-Focused Organization, Robert Kaplan and David Norton share the results of ten years of learning and research into more than 200 companies that have implemented the Balanced Scorecard. 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

Alignment : using the balanced scorecard to create corporate synergies by Robert S Kaplan( Book )
21 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and Dutch and held by 633 libraries worldwide
"Most organizations contain multiple business and support units, each led by highly trained, experienced executives and staffed by talented employees. But too often, different units fail to coordinate: they work at cross-purposes and have conflicting goals. Results? Performance-sapping disagreements, lost opportunities, wasted resources - and a corporation whose value amounts to less than the sum of its parts." "Robert S. Kaplan and David P. Norton explain how to correct such organizational misalignment - not only within a company but between the firm and its board of directors, investors, customers, and suppliers." "The authors maintain that the responsibility for organizational alignment lies with corporate headquarters. They show how top executives can build a corporate-level strategy map and scorecard that graphically depict their company's "enterprise value proposition"--How the organization creates synergies from its business units - and use the revolutionary Balanced Scorecard management system to set, coordinate, and oversee implementation of high-level strategy."--Jacket
The execution premium : linking strategy to operations for competitive advantage by Robert S Kaplan( Book )
18 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Dutch and held by 491 libraries worldwide
In a world of stiffening competition, business strategy is more crucial than ever. Yet most organizations struggle in this area -- not with formulating strategy but with executing it, or putting their strategy into action. Owing to execution failures, companies realize just a fraction of the financial performance promised in their strategic plans. It doesn't have to be that way, maintain Robert Kaplan and David Norton. Building on their works on strategy-focused organizations, the authors describe a multistage system that enables you to gain measurable benefits from your carefully formulated business strategy. This book shows you how to: develop an effective strategy -- with tools such as SWOT analysis, vision formulation, and strategic change agendas; plan execution of the strategy -- through portfolios of strategic initiatives linked to strategy maps and Balanced Scorecards; put your strategy into action -- by integrating operational tools such as process dashboards, rolling forecasts, and activity-based costing; and test and update your strategy -- using carefully designed management meetings to review operational and strategic data
Time-driven activity-based costing : a simpler and more powerful path to higher profits by Robert S Kaplan( Book )
33 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 488 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 )
26 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 268 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
What you really need to lead : the power of thinking and acting like an owner by Robert S Kaplan( Book )
4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 221 libraries worldwide
"What makes a leader? Can you really learn to lead? You might think that leaders need to be born with the right skills or personality attributes. Perhaps you believe you don't have the right experience or that you need to hold an important job to be a leader. Maybe you believe you need permission to lead. As Harvard Business School professor and business executive Robert Steven Kaplan explains in this powerful new book, leadership is accessible to all of us-today-and it starts with an ownership mind-set. You don't need an invitation to lead. Leadership is a dynamic way of thinking and acting that anyone can take on. For Kaplan, acting as a leader is a function of three key questions: 1. Do you work to figure out what you believe as if you were an owner? 2. Do you take action based on those beliefs? 3. Do you focus on adding value to others and take responsibility for the impact of your actions on others-both positive and negative? The book is full of stories taken from the author's own leadership experience as well as from his work helping various types of leaders and organizations. What's revealed is that leadership is not a role reserved for an elite few blessed with the right skills and key positions-it's about a focus on taking ownership and adding value to others. What's more, leadership is a lifelong journey of learning for which you must take responsibility. It's about learning to ask the right questions and learning to understand yourself. As in his earlier books, Kaplan asks probing questions, provides exercises, and suggests follow-up steps that will help you develop your skills, create new habits, and move you toward reaching your unique potential. What You Really Need to Lead is your key to unlocking the power of thinking and acting like an owner"--
