“Get Results that Count is concise and easy to read. At Norsat, our measurement philosophy mirrors the principles discussed in the book. We use forward and backward looking metrics to monitor the performance of each role in the company. I like Connie’s approach in linking measures for action and outcome. You can apply her approach at the strategic level as well as at the team level.”
Amiee Chan, President & CEO, Norsat International Inc.
“The book is excellent and very insightful. In organizations I have worked in the past there was a constant demand to measure everything and anything that was available but little of this effort turned into appropriate action. This book really guides one to ensure that the measurements are legitimate game changers in the business.”
Steve Falkner, Executive Director, Mount Sinai Hospital Medical Imaging
“This book is concise and very practical. It provides a good roadmap for a manager who needs to think strategically about measurement. More junior managers might be looking for more specific examples or case studies that show the strategies in action, but that would be challenging to do in a way that speaks to specific industries. Instead, they’re probably better off trying to really understand the concepts, and then extrapolating from the examples given by the author. Importantly, the book helps to demystify the whole process of measurement in a business context.”
Peter Moroney, Associate Executive Director, University of British Columbia Continuing Studies
