From a nomination for the award:
Kim's acceptance presentation had the following main messages:
The talk explains some of the challenges that arise for management, especially understanding 'what causes what, and why'. It demonstrates how, when these principles are put together, management can put together a 'performance panel' for their business - a diagram that shows how changes in key parts of the business combine to drive performance. From this foundation, the management team can sketch out strategic options evaluate alternatives.
Kim's presentation, in Macromedia Flash format, slides (PDF) and mystrategy models have been made available and can be accessed from the links in the box on the right. The mystrategy Reader software is also provided to enable viewing of the models.
