Praise for Roadmaps and Revelations

"Simply brilliant, and brilliant in its simplicity. I have read few books that convey so much in such a memorable manner. Roadmaps and Revelations will be a must–read for my leadership team as we look to improve our own strategic planning processes."
Jay Forbes, Senior EVP & President, EMEA, Ingram Micro (a Fortune 100 company)

"Once again Paul Niven hits right on target. Through his examination of strategic planning, he fills a gap many of us practitioners face when we embark on the process of developing our strategy, and he couldn′t have done it in a better way than with his fable. His story provides a very practical and comprehensive methodology for developing strategy while at the same time engendering a fundamental understanding of the meaning of strategy to its readers."
Salvador Ornelas, President and CEO, Crown Paradise Resorts, Mexico
