Nolan-Norton  Study Group Meeting


Participants in the study, entitled "Measuring Performance in the Organization of the Future," were Advanced Micro-Devices, American Standard, Apple Computer, Bell South, GIGNA, Conner Peripherals, Cray Research, Dupont, EDS, GE, HP, and Shell Canada.  Bob and I teamed in a pair of presentations; his, in part, on the HBS Analog Case and mine on the Analog story. 

The Executive Summary of the study was published some time in 1991 and included materials from Bob's and my presentations.  One display in the Executive Summary was used to demonstrate the linkage between performance measurement and the organization's strategy and vision.  It used materials taken from slide 20 in this presentation as an example.

The interest generated by Analog's corporate scorecard prompted a second Nolan-Norton study in which the participants implemented scorecards within their respective organizations.  This study provided the basis for the first Kaplan-Norton HBR article, which appeared in the January-February, 1992 issue.  Although that article did make brief mention of Analog's use of the half-life method, and described the experiences of an anonymous "NYSE electronics company" (that was us!), it did not describe Analog's pioneering work on the first balanced scorecard.  Nor did an article by Larry Maisel, then of KPMG, who was also part of the Nolan-Norton study.  He published the study results in the Summer 1992 issue of the Journal of Cost Management in an article entitled "Performance Measurement: The Balanced Scorecard Approach."

This is the slide package I left for the meeting participants.  I canít be sure that I used all of these slides in my presentation since Iíve been unable to locate a copy of the videotape that was made.

Since nearly all of the slides that I used are described in other presentations on this website, Iíve omitted explanatory notes.
