This work offers a summary of the book "THE STRATEGY-FOCUSED ORGANIZATION: How Balanced Scorecard Companies Thrive in the New Business Environment" by Robert S. Kaplan and David P. Norton. Robert Kaplan is the professor of leadership development at Harvard Business School. He is a much sought after business consultant, public speaker, researcher and teacher on the design of performance and cost management systems. David Norton is a highly accomplished and experienced management consultant, researcher and speaker, as well as the coauthor of a number of published articles. Highly productive organizations implement strategy exceptionally well. According to Kaplan and Norton, they typically place more emphasis on execution than on strategy formulation. And once their strategy has been articulated, high performers concentrate on focusing and aligning all their resources behind putting that strategy into action. So how do they do that? High performers measure and manage their strategy using a "Balanced Scorecard" approach. In The Strategy-Focused Organization, the authors explain five key principles to use the "Balanced Scorecard" as a central framework. Based on in-depth case studies, The Strategy-Focused Organization is a pragmatic and well-researched book for businesspeople. This is a reliable source of growth and change in strategy development.
