EIS and the
Adaptive Metrics Center
announce the release of three related publications on
the Adaptive Scorecard. These are:
Joseph M. Firestone, Ph.D. quot;From the Balanced Scorecard to the
Adaptive Scorecard: An Adaptive Maturity Model quot; Business-IT
Strategies Advisory Service, Executive Report, Vol. 9, no. 10,
Cutter Consortium, Arlington, MA: 2006.
This report proposes a major revision of the
conceptual framework underlying the Balanced Scorecard. It adds
intelligence performance measures, external impact measures, the
process/outcome distinction, and the managing/doing distinction. The
result is a much more multi-faceted approach to business performance
measurement, which gives due weight to adaptive capacity and
innovation, and to measurement techniques and software tools. Take
advantage of the very generous promotional offer from Cutter and
download the report.
Joseph M. Firestone, Ph.D., quot;The
Balanced Scorecard: Developments and Challenges, quot; KMCI Online Press,
This paper provides important background for the
Cutter Report in the form of a review of the Balanced Scorecard
Firestone, Ph.D., quot;The Open Enterprise Software Template: An
Analytic Hierarchy Framework for Measuring Aspects of Organizational
Adaptive Functioning quot; (An Adaptive Metrics Center Industry Report
Bundle) This is AMC's first adaptive scorecard metrics industry
report. If your task is Business Performance Measurement (BPM) and
you want to improve on your enterprise scorecard by doing a better
job of taking into account organizational adaptive functioning, then
the software template component of this report bundle, a very
detailed (412 pp.) analytic hierarchy implemented in Expert Choice
11, will be indispensable to you. It provides the framework
structure you need to create adaptive scorecards. The template is
meant to be used as a reference work. In it you can find
hierarchical structures specifying a variety of key constructs
related to organizational adaptive functioning.span

EIS and The New Knowledge Management
helps organizations to enhance their knowledge processing and their ability to
learn and adapt. The form of knowledge management we practice is called The New
Knowledge Management (TNKM), and over the past 5 years we have been among the few
developers and first practitioners of it
is the basis for EIS's novel consulting and training offerings in KM. Visit our about,
consulting, and training
pages. There you'll find an entirely novel approach to KM consulting and training that
focuses on enhancing all of knowledge processing, not just knowledge sharing, and that
uses concepts, tools, techniques, and methodology that promise to revolutionize KM
competitive advantage is about sustainable problem-solving (innovation), much more than it
is about distributing and sharing information that may or may not be knowledge. We support
you in developing policies and programs for enhancing the way you produce and integrate
knowledge to develop innovative solutions to business problems. To us that's real
knowledge management. More . . .
