"Reasearch shows the Kaplan/Norton Balanced Scorecard management system works. With esm+STRATEGY, it works better."
Dr. David P. Norton, Co-creator of the Balanced Scorecard Management System
I was fortunate in that I found my dream job right at the beginning of my career, working for Kaplan & Norton’s new start up, called Balanced Scorecard Collaborative in 2000. As a consultant, I had the opportunity to advise and train leadership teams around the world on strategy.
We quickly realized we were leaving these organizations with great plans but without the tools needed to communicate, report and really execute the strategy.
That’s when we began developing software that supported organizations during both the strategy formulation and the strategy reporting phases. We beta tested the software with our first client in late 2000 and shortly thereafter, began our regular release cycle of Executive Strategy Manager®, or ESM® for short. Since our launch over 20 years ago, over 120,000 users have benefited from our system.
Our core focus is an easy to use system that enables you to start really simple, meeting you at your stage in the strategy process, yet, offers the sophistication of a mature strategy management system for those organizations who run strategy review meetings in all areas of their business.
We pride ourselves as the original SaaS strategy application, one that is built from the mindset of end users and business process consultants. While we are all expert strategy facilitators, strategy and execution disciplines continually evolve and there is always more to learn. That's what makes this space so exciting and keeps us motivated to continually improve ESM solutions and service offerings.
We invite you to experience our software applications and share with us what you think. We’d love to be your partner in your strategy execution journey.
