“Many Balanced Scorecard projects seem to grind to a halt once the scorecard has been built. Strategic DNA is the only approach that I have seen that integrates, coherently and exhaustively, the Balanced Scorecard methodology with Project Management theory. Anyone frustrated by lack of progress in their scorecard implementations should find Strategic DNA very helpful.”

“We have worked with Lawrence and reading Strategic DNA was like going through our entire business plan development all over again.  I found it to be a practical, self guided, user friendly book; you can focus on one area only or build an entire Strategy and Business Plan from scratch.  I particularly like the chapter structure…easy to follow and it made each piece of the strategy come to life for me. I had several Ahhh moments.”
