Among the top concerns of executive leaders today is effective and efficient strategy execution.
Global Strategic Management Institute (GSMI) hosted their Second Annual Mission Driven Performance Summit in Washington DC, along with Ascendant Strategy Management Group to address just that. The Summit brought not-for-profit and government leaders together to discuss the Balanced Scorecard method and how it can be used to ameliorate challenges within the public and social sector.
The summit was led by Harvard Business School Professor Robert Kaplan and Balanced Scorecard co-creator David Norton and included participants from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Department of Education, Project Management Institute, Rare, and the Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Boston.

As an event specifically designed for government agencies and not-for-profit organizations, the Mission-Driven Performance Summit featured case studies and thought-provoking sessions that gave insight into how organizations can effectively implement and manage strategy to survive and thrive in the new environment.
This summit brought together over 120 leaders from across the country and abroad, including Russia, the UK, South Africa, Tunisia, and Finland, to discuss and advance the art and science of management in the public and social sector.
