    Reviews

    "[In Winning Score], Brown suggests new ways business managers can use scoring systems to help them achieve long term goals. Observing that many companies still spend time constructing elaborate scoring systems that are not used for making changes in the company's operation, he argues that a better approach would be for companies to measure what matters, rather than collecting data that offers no insight into the company's long term strategy."
