The second edition of Bjarte’s great book: “Implementing Beyond Budgeting:Unlocking the Performance Potential” is out next month in the US and in Europe in August. You can find it on Amazon here.
This new second edition has been significantly revised and expanded, and Robert S. Kaplan has written the foreword. The book covers the amazing development of the Beyond Budgeting movement and how the Statoil implementation journey has continued since the first edition of the book was published in 2009, sustaining major events like for instance the 2015 oil price crash. A new chapter on “Beyond Budgeting and Agile” has also been added. New implementation experiences, great new case stories, new management innovation examples and management metaphors are introduced, as well as Bjarte’s latest reflections on a range of management issues including target setting, forecasting, performance evaluation and incentives.
