(May/Jun 2001). Building a strategy-focused organization. Ivey Business Journal, Vol. 65(5), pp. 12-19. Rothschild, P., Balaban, R., & Duggal, J. (2004). Linking strategic planning to funding Scholey, C. (2005). Strategy maps: a step-by-step guide to measuring, managing and communicating the plan. The Journal of Business Strategy, Vol. 26 (iss. 3), pp. 12-19. The execution of a good strategy is usually given far less attention than the creation of that strategy. But a good strategy is meaningless if it is not acted upon. Focus the organization to execute on that strategy, however, and the results can amaze. It is widely accepted that you can't manage what you can't measure. A tool that came into widespread acceptance in the early nineties to help with this issue was the balanced scorecard. The balanced scorecard has proven itself extremely useful in the execution of strategy by helping thousands of companies put specific and tangible measures against their strategy. The strategy map is created using a framework that plots the dimensions (or perspectives) of the balanced scorecard down the left side. As powerful a tool as strategy mapping is, the tool in and of itself can be difficult to learn and execute on.

ORGANIZATIONAL DESIGN Friesen, B.G. (September 2005). Organizational design for the 21st century. Consulting to Management, Vol. 16(3), p. 32, (11 pages). Organization design is about much more than drawing boxes and lines. Beneath the depiction of who reports to whom lie numerous decisions about complex interlocked variables. Organization designers have devised three families of organization design: 1. hierarchy, 2. matrix, and 3. network. As with hierarchy and matrix, organization designers will eventually arrive at a standard set of principles and a descriptive name for the newest family of organization designs.
