In smart org: there are clear measures of value at all levels

In smart org: there are clear measures of value at all levels. In non-smart: There may be no value measures. If there are, each level sets its own values or decision criteria, with no special requirement that they be related to values and strategies at other levels.

I have worked with this organisation and they are very good. David is able to guide,and challenge in a way that brings about transformation with people's thinking and approach to driving their buisnesses. This book does create value in your organsiation by following the techniques and principles as outliend by the Mathieson's. Worth reading several times.

The book is a good read and includes plenty of real-life examples. Provides a different perspective on strategy versus operations.

Frequently organizations face the challange of what not to do. They tend to believe in the person presenting the idea, rather then creating a rigorous process for evaluating the options before them. Companies adopting best practices in managing their investment options realize substantial gains in their long term bottem line. This book quantifies this performance difference, and what the best practices are across a range of industries.
Why aren't organizations more rigorous in selecting projects? The book outlines several barriers which are extremely relevent:
· It will make a popular champion look bad,
· Organizational resistance to change, or cannibalization of an existing business for a new opportunity,
· We confuse the urgent with the important,
· Its hard to agree on measures and success criteria
· People are afraid of making the wrong prediction, so they don't make any,
· Its hard to normalize results from different contributors,
· Business plans are not integrated with new project activity,
· Power and politics, a methodical evaluation leaves no room for interpretation and "behind the scenes" trade offs between groups and individuals,
· Lack of strategy.
The best practices outlined in this book are backed by substantial research. I would have like to have seen a few additional chapters on application of best practices in real companies ... a case study of a turn around.

Focusing on large R&D intensive organizations, this book explores nine key principles that make these enterprises effective, such as: open information flow, systems thinking, and continual learning. The author's emphasize the decision making process as a means of changing and improving overall organizational performance. If you are seeking new insights into how strategy is developed, excellence can be achieved in decision making, and organization renewal can be realized, you will find this book enlightening and fascinating reading. The insights offered here are by no means limited to high-technology firms; they apply to any organization seeking to be successful in today's fast-paced markets. This work includes an organizational IQ test (a diagnostic tool) for identifying root causes of the barriers to improving decision processes. There is an impressive amount of knowledge about organization to be gleaned in The Smart Company. Whether you are a technology -based bus! iness or not, you will find many nuggets in this work. We highly recommend it.

As an experienced decision analyst, I really enjoyed reading Chapter 10 on R&D Portfolio Strategy. I was already familiar with much of the material in the early chapters, being steeped in the Howard/Stanford/SDG/SDRM school of thought on DA, so I skipped the earlier chapters.

Often times we do careful analyses on individual projects to get them all on a level playing field, but the concepts of this chapter bring together the elements of how to evaluate and prioritize those carefully characterized projects. The R&D Productivity Chart is a simple-but-excellent tool to rank projects. And their low vs. status quo vs. high vs minimal investment level was a nice detail to further refine our projects. I also appreciated the history and philosophy behind the names of the Bread-and-Butter, White Elephant, Oyster, and Pearl project categories. And the concept of developing a Value Creation culture cannot be emphasized enough.

I've always been impressed by SDG's approach to things and this book by SmartOrg in no exception.

Recommendation: Buy it, even if only for Chapter 10.

Thank you very much for sending me a copy of The Smart Organization. I have completed only two chapters, but find the book to be thoroughly engaging. Especially, the six dimensions of decision quality.
My current job is proving to be a daily "case study." The ideas contained in the book have come to life, helping me to better understand my environment at work and make better decisions along the journey.

I bought this book with not much idea of what it has got for me.

As a went through some of the initial chapters I really got interested.The book has numerous examples and case studies. This really helps in understanding the concept and driving an analogy to actual life scenarios.

I strongly recommend reading this book.

Thanks.
