July 8, 2013

High Performing Organizations Worldwide Leverage Kaplan & Norton® Strategy Execution Approach to Achieve and Sustain Results

BOSTON, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Palladium Group, Inc. the global leader in helping organizations solve their most pressing strategy execution challenges, and Harvard Business Publishing have released the report, Strategy Execution Champions: The Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame Report 2013. The report features overviews of the 25 organizations inducted into the Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame for Executing Strategy® in 2011 and 2012, who are among the most geographically and industry-diverse group of winners in the Hall of Fame program’s history. Winning organizations include: Abu Dhabi Police, Qatar Steel, Elkay Manufacturing Company, Citi Performing Arts Center (Citi Center), Cablevision Mexico, Incheon International Airport Corporation, and many more! Hall of Fame winners are high-performing organizations that have used the Kaplan & Norton strategy execution approach to achieve and sustain breakthrough performance results.

Today, with 179 members in the Hall of Fame, these management principles are known worldwide. To achieve success a leadership team needs to overcome three challenges: 1) establish direction, 2) align the workforce by motivating and inspiring the right behaviors, and 3) leverage feedback by being prepared to make course corrections as evidence is used to test whether the selected strategy is achieving the desired results. This Hall of Fame Report highlights organizations inducted in the preceding two years. Each profile notes the challenges the winner faced and how it achieved and sustains measurable breakthrough performance through its ability to successfully execute its strategy in spite of very challenging market and economic conditions.

The Palladium Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame Report 2013 provides up-to-date examples of how well-led – and well-managed – organizations can beat the odds and successfully execute strategy, achieving substantial outcomes in spite of economic challenges. The introduction provides useful context and data on the enduring power of the Kaplan & Norton approach, and how these management principles continue to deliver organizational, operational, and economic value for organizations.

“Over the past two years we have seen very powerful examples of organizations that successfully executed their strategies in spite of the tough economic conditions across the globe. These cases provide role models for other organizations that want to be successful in any economic climate,” as stated by Randall Russell, Vice President and Director of Research, Palladium.”

Randy Russell’s Upcoming Webinar on “The Future of Strategy Execution” is scheduled for Wednesday, July 17(th) at 11:00 AM (EDT). Click link below to register:
