A frequent lecturer and writer, Dr. Norton’s work with the Balanced Scorecard has been the subject of many articles and public conferences.  He is the co-author, with Dr. Robert S.

His books have been translated into 23 languages.  The Balanced Scorecard concept was selected by the editors of Harvard Business Review as one of the most influential management ideas of the past 75 years. 

Dr. Norton helps its organizations achieve an Execution Premium by linking strategy and operations and enabling mission critical links with timely robust information and data. Today, companies are adopting more complex strategies to handle the increased competition and greater demands from their shareholders, such as increase share price, bond rating, revenues, and brand value.

Dr. Norton earned a BS in electrical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, an MS in operations research from the Florida Institute of Technology, an MBA from FloridaStateUniversity, and his doctorate in business administration from HarvardBusinessSchool.

The Execution Premium: Linking Strategy to Operations for Competitive Advantage
