4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to BSM 1 Jun 2007
By Mr. Phillip Nicholas - Published on
I've already recommended this to consultants, quite a tricky product to walk you through and does a pretty good job. Combines the technical aspects of BSM with the practical, developers can make use of the additional chapters on using the web service etc. too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The missing Business Scorecard Manager Manual 7 May 2007
By JoshInMillValley - Published on
I'm totally new to BSM 2005 and have to admit that I flailed around with the product until I got this book. This book has given me a solid foundation of understanding of the product and answered many of my questions.

Its very well written and edited. They seem to have included all of the important stuff but not added a ton of filler that you have to wade through to get at that good stuff.

I have only one minor complaint. The book was written assuming you're using SharePoint 2003 (which is perfectly reasonable since that is what BSM was designed for). Unfortunately I'm using SharePoint 2007 and while this is suppose to work the book is silent on these issues and Microsoft doesn't offer very good guidance. On the other hand, I emailed one of the author's with a question and got a fast and useful reply.

Bottom line: this is the book that Microsoft should have supplied when they first released the product a couple of years ago.
