‘When you think of giving feedback, start giving feedforward –
focus on the promise of the future rather than the mistakes of the past.

Instead of rehashing a past that cannot be changed (feedback), Marshall Goldsmith and Jon Katzenbach coined “feedforward” to encourage spending time creating a future.’

Marshall Goldsmith is a well recognized coach on management behavior.

You can use his ‘FeedForward Tool’ to improve your communication with people you work with.

Great podcast by David Maister:

David Maister

how to improve collaboration in large organizations.

‘I am going to read off a list of the “network collaboration” tactics that large multisite professional companies consider in attempting to induce more cooperation in their networks.

The top-tier tactics:

  1. Cross-staffing
  2. Rotation of staff
  3. Reorganize around people we want to collaborate more
  4. Information-sharing (Real-Time Knowledge Management) (…) ‘

In my opinion, Real-Time Knowledge Management is supported by Web 2.0 platforms.

Summary of the article ‘Partnering and the Balanced Scorecard’ by Robert Kaplan

February 2, 2008

Robert Kaplan

Article: ‘Partnering and the Balanced Scorecard’

Core benefit of the Strategy Map:

  • ´strategies will be successful only if all employees understand it…’
  • ‘ the Map is a visualization of the strategy´
  • ‘ the Strategy Map complements the Balanced Scorecard’
      • ´use the Map to communicate a vision for the future…´

      Communicating the strategy with a Strategy Map matches nicely with the idea of ‘Stickyness’ of effective messages!

      There are some other interesting articles by Robert Kaplan and David Norton (inventors of the BSC) on the Harvard Business School website:
