Simply "making the numbers" is no longer enough to remain competitive. In today's high-pressure environment, organizations need to overachieve. That level of success requires a clear and objective view of the business-because even the most courageous leader can't steer a ship in the dark. Is the enterprise Agile? Resilient? Vulnerable? Or Lagging? The Scorecard Solution provides the answer. The book introduces a data-centric tool-the Organizational Prowess Scorecard(TM)-that precisely measures the capabilities needed for sustainable growth. Analyzing the dimensions of talent, strategy, and execution produces a baseline score, and shines a light on the performance gaps that hold a business back. With the facts in hand, readers then learn how to: Position the organization to meet ambitious goals * Bring strategies to life through an execution framework * Design a dashboard to track progress and flag problems * Foster a winning culture * And more Organizations that maintain the status quo will be left in the dust. The Scorecard Solution helps companies chart a course for rapid change-and outperform the competition every time.
