Filled with specific examples, it is essential reading for leaders at all levels of an organization serious about getting it right."

"No surprise, Howard Dresner has it right: as the global competition heightens, corporate hierarchies flatten, and companies increasingly compete on speed, organizations need to embrace the discipline and art of performance management to keep apace. This book is a must–read for business and technology executives who want to help their organizations (and themselves) thrive in the years ahead."
