The Performance Management Revolution: Business Results Through Insight and Action

We are eagerly looking forward to the release of this new book by Howard Dresner, a well-respected industry expert in the areas of Business Intelligence and Performance Management and former Gartner analyst, in the latter half of this year. In this book Dresner introduces the concept of information democracy, an enterprise-wide system where everybody has access to the information they need to do their jobs most effectively, as a way to improve corporate performance and how to make it happen within your organization.
