Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 13, 2008
Ascendant Strategy Management Group, in partnership with Global Strategic Management Institute (GSMI), is proud to announce that it will be hosting the premier performance management event for government agencies and non-profit organizations, the Mission-Critical Performance Management Summit, in Washington, DC on March 4-6, 2009.
The most widely used and accepted management system in the exploding nonprofit and government performance management sector today is the Balanced Scorecard, a time-tested framework that helps organizations align their operations to strategy for exceptional (top 10%) results.
This event will feature keynote sessions presented by Balanced Scorecard co-creators and management thought leaders Dr. Robert Kaplan and Dr. David Norton. As an event specifically designed for government agencies and not-for-profit organizations, the Mission-Critical Performance Management Summit will feature case studies and thought-provoking sessions that will help organizations:
- Demonstrate their impact in a time of increasing donor skepticism
- Do "more with less" by improving organizational management
- Effectively partner with funders, customers, and affiliated organizations
- Ensure they are ready for growth (and the coming leadership "gap")
This event will bring together, for the first time, mission-focused leaders from across the country to discuss and advance the art and science of performance management. Commenting on his participation in this event, Dr. Kaplan said:
"The need for and interest in performance management in the nonprofit and government agency space is at an all time high. I'm very excited to be a part of this event and look forward to helping mission-focused organizations of all sizes use the Balanced Scorecard to execute strategy."
Over 200 organizational executives and managers representing not-for-profit organizations, foundations, and government agencies at the federal, state, and local levels will be in attendance. Ted Jackson, founder and managing partner of Ascendant, commented:
"This event will be the first convening exclusively dedicated to helping mission-focused organizations implement performance management and execute strategy. We're thrilled to be able to bring together a world-class group of nonprofit leaders, speakers, and management experts."
