The Performance Management Revolution

Business Results Through Insight and Action"Some revolutions—like the American Revolution—are bloody and noisy, while others—like the Industrial Revolution—are quieter and slower. In the long run, though, both kinds of revolutions lead to profound change. Today, I believe we are in the early stages of one of the quiet revolutions. At the heart of this revolution is an increase in human freedom in business. The Performance Management Revolution provides a compelling and insightful description of the profound changes that will take place, what they will really mean for you, and how you can take advantage of them to improve your business performance."

From the Foreword

Thomas W. Malone

Patrick J. McGovern Professor of, Management and Director, Center for Collective Intelligence Sloan School of Management

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The Information Democracy Age has arrived, where everyone—not just senior management—has broad access to corporate information. In order to improve its performance, your business needs to commit to an enterprise-wide Information Democracy, and the surest way to a democracy is a revolution. The Performance Management Revolution shows you how your business can get prepared for the future—transforming strategies into plans, plans into actions, and actions into results.

Written by Howard Dresner, a worldwide authority in the area of business intelligence and performance management, this powerful book provides you with the tools for proactively managing your company's success, from the boardroom to the front lines, achieving breakthrough performances everywhere.

In The Performance Management Revolution, you will learn:

  • The profound implications Information Democracy has for the way your company operates

  • How a new generation of software can help enable Information Democracy

  • The various ways empowered individuals at all levels can work collaboratively towards shared objectives, with full knowledge of how their own actions affect performance

Starting a revolution is hard work. This visionary book is your road map to the performance management revolution already in progress, providing an intelligent framework to empower-ing your organization towards its own path to better performance through insight and action.

Book News Annotation:

For executives and managers, Dresner explains his method called Information Democracy, meant to allow everyone access to information, analysis of it, and the ability to share it with others. He describes successful use of the software tool Enterprise Performance Management, including barriers to adopting it, and drawing an accountability map of the organization, achieving Information Democracy, building an organization that defines, refines, documents, and promotes best practices, standardizing and consolidating tools, and deploying a system. He ends with discussions of important aspects of performance management, determining a project, model methodology, and how to measure outcomes. Dresner is associated with an independent advisory firm that specializes in business intelligence and performance management. No bibliography is provided.
