This book can be used by a variety of professionals: *Managers - they can understand the connection between strategy, business planning process, objectives, performane measurement also the managers will learn to work better with performance improvment and project management experts, get used to spend enough time with planning, checking assumptions and objective definitions. In this way thye might see the 'wasted time with planning and paper work' like and investment that will prove shortly it is a worth wile one. *Performance management or projects managers - the experienced ones have a comprehensive review of the proccesses and activities involved in performance management. From this point of view the book is a good refference to come back from time to time in order to understand the 'big picture'. I'm doing this with great pleasure. Less experienced project managers might want to use this as a strating point in order to improve knowledge, to find out theirs future study needs and learn how to better plan and manage the next projects. *Accountants - to better understand the connection between financial measures and non financial ones. *Human Resources experts - to learn how to connect the individual performance with business results achievement, business plan, and business strategy. They also will find new ideas about how to improve the communication with management and 'reinvent' HR role in business management. The authors are doing a great job in explaining the connection between strategic planning and performance measures, presenting the steps to design and implement a strategy. They put a lot of attention in detailing the three architecture types we have to take care in preparing the project performance plan: organizational architecture, technological architecture and process architecture. After a clear presentation of balanced scorecards, it is shown how all the above information can be used for business planning, process performance measurement, and job performance measurement. Strongly recommended to the ones interested in increasing organizational capacity, in improving management and project management skills, in restructuring organization architecture and its activity.Was this review helpful?
