Stratexology: Creating Shared Value and Positive Impact
t’s been more than 25 years since Harvard Business School professor Dr. Robert S. Kaplan and cohort David P. Norton put forth the concept and research of the Balanced Scorecard, a practice of measuring whether the smaller-scale operational activities of a company are aligned with its larger-scale objectives in terms of vision and strategy. However, the culture and strategy remains relevant today.
Things have changed from that time and the "science" of Strategy Execution is a broad concept to replace the "Balanced Scorecard" and "Execution Premium" to create shared value and positive Impact. It is now a clear "science".
