Analytics for Leaders provides a concise, readable account of a complete system of performance measurement for an enterprise. Based on over twenty years of research and development, the system is designed to provide people at all levels with the quantitative information they need to do their jobs: board members to exercise due diligence about all facets of the business, leaders to decide where to focus attention next, and people to carry out their work well. For senior officers, chapter openers provide quick overviews about the overall approach to a particular stakeholder group and how to connect overall performance measures to business impact. For MBA students, extensive supporting notes and references provide in-depth understanding. For researchers and practitioners, a generic statistical approach is described to encourage new ways of tackling performance measurement issues. The book is relevant to all types of enterprise, large or small, public or private, academic or governmental.Read more

'Analytics for Leaders is the definitive work on how to measure an enterprise's performance, and how to analyze the resulting data. The purpose of the measurement design and analysis is producing actionable results to improve performance. Nick Fisher provides not just tools, but much detail on how to implement them. The Fisher system applies to big and small enterprises, and to any type: corporate, governmental, academic, etc. The book targets enterprise leaders, who play a critical role in developing plans for those enterprise issues to be studied using the system. It also targets those whom leaders select to implement the plan. This book will serve as an excellent text for an academic program. Nick Fisher's writing is organized step-by-step in a logical way, and is marvellously lucid.' William S. Cleveland, Shanti S. Gupta Distinguished Professor of Statistics, Purdue University
