Editorial Reviews

"The insights, examples, and evidence offered in Strategic Performance Mangement are invaluable for managers who are struggloing to help their companies compete in this era of extreme competition. In this text, De Waal has integrated relevant technical and behavioural materials and presented them in an easily accessible way." - Dr Kenneth A Merchant, Deloitte& Touche LLP Chair of Accountancy, Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California, USA   "A worthy addition to our knowledge of strategy approaches. This new work by De Waal combines traditional approaches such as the formality of the planning cycle along with the more current focus on individual performance and its contribution to organisational success. All of this is suitably set within an operational environment that includes both the public and privte sectors."  - Bill Ryan, Lecturer in Accounting and Deputy Director, Distance Learning MBA, School of Managament, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK.   "This is a well-researched, yet accessible text that connects strategy formulation with the tools of strategy reporting, issues of organisational behaviour and key questions of implementation,. I liked the clear presentation and the use of case studies and exercises for reflective learning throughout." - Professor Thomas Ahrens, Professor of Accounting, Warwick Business School, UK  "The author has managed to adopt an innovative approach which helps to enrich the arguments and the reasoning, and he has brought up a good and extensive academic literature on strategy and planning issues to support the development of his models and enhance the discussion. The book is very welll supported with many charts, diagrams, appendices, and case studies to support the discussion and the argument. The inclusion of the developing countries in this topic of strategy and planning is very interesting." - Professor Kadim al-Shaghana, TQM& Excellence, Faculty of Organisation and Management, Sheffield Hallam University, UK "Andre de Waal's book provides a comprehensive overview of the issues relating to strategy and measurement. Thought provoking, practical and well written, this book will be a valuable addition to everyone's bookshelf."  - Professor Andy Neely, Cranfield School of Management, UK "Strategic Performance Management has the great benefit of insights from the combination of De Waal's academic and practical experience in his subject. This experience means he is able to cover a wide area of the performance field and practitioners in particular will appreciate the easy-to-follow key points sections and the use of many practical illustrations." - Andrew Likierman, London Business Shool, UK
