From the Inside Flap
Balanced Scorecard Evolution delivers value to an extent that has become all too rare. We all realize that the world is not what it used to be and that organizations need to be able to adapt faster than ever before. What we need―and what this book delivers―is a full complement of concrete, useable tools for becoming more agile in planning and executing strategic change. Instead of focusing on just one tool or exercise, Balanced Scorecard Evolution moves through each phase of strategy execution in the current environment: becoming agile, driving change, and executing strategy on a daily basis. For each of these three topics, readers of this book will find not just one or two but countless practical techniques built upon the idea of the Balanced Scorecard.
The importance of having a breadth of tools in your managerial toolkit cannot be overstated. Balanced Scorecard and similar ideas have been around for decades, but the changing nature of business has given rise to a veritable infinity of new management frameworks vying for prominence. In the process, it’s easy to become overwhelmed, especially if you don’t have infinite resources to match. Balanced Scorecard Evolution brings the time–tested Balanced Scorecard approach into the current decade, giving managers a firm and practical foundation on which to build success.
Readers who have already developed a Scorecard and are looking to improve results will appreciate this book just as much as those who are new to the Balanced Scorecard approach. Author Paul R. Niven goes beyond the surface in this book, provoking genuine strategic reflection and conversation. Grounded in the latest research and current case studies, Balanced Scorecard Evolution approaches strategic execution from a fresh perspective. Businesses no longer have the luxury of developing “five–year plans.” We need to develop the flexibility to plan, communicate, and execute change constantly. Thanks to Balanced Scorecard Evolution, there is a step–by–step approach to doing just that.

Praise for BALANCED SCORECARD EVOLUTION
A Dynamic Approach to Strategy Execution
“Paul brings the most comprehensive yet easily understandable approach to this important management topic. Our business unit needed to quickly bring together a cross–functional team, map out our strategy, and communicate it effectively to the broader team. Paul’s practical insights and commonsense methodology made this possible.”
―Jim Doyle, President, Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company
“In the preface of Balanced Scorecard Evolution, Paul Niven asks two important questions: ‘Why does the world need another Balanced Scorecard book?’ and ‘How is this one different?’ Paul answers both convincingly, but based on my reading of the book I have formed my own opinion. (1) The world needs another Balanced Scorecard book because both the Balanced Scorecard and the world have changed and we, executives and managers, must ensure we have the most relevant and up–to–date information to make informed strategic decisions. This book provides that knowledge and more. (2) This book is different because very few writers on business management, worldwide, can tell this story in as compelling a fashion as Paul Niven.”
―Odilon Santos Neto, CEO, Odilon Santos Group
“In his new book, Paul Niven provides both beginner and experienced Balanced Scorecard practitioners alike with the latest practical tips and tools, all enveloped in his unique gift for storytelling. This must–read guide provides a clear roadmap to ensure you realize the tremendous value a Balanced Scorecard implementation can deliver.”
―Dennis Barnhart, Chief Strategy and Integration Officer, Teranet Inc.
