10 Reasons To Register Today for the Mission-Driven Management Summit

Posted February 23, 2012 9:55 AM by Dylan Miyake

The 2012 Mission-Driven Management Summit is just a few weeks away, so I wanted to offer ten reasons you should register today (if you haven't already):

10. The 2012 MDMS is being held at the National Press Club, the "place where news happens." Who knows who you'll meet in the hallways... Danica Patrick, Janet Napolitano, Mike Huckabee, Alec Baldwin, and more have spoken there recently.

9. Get out of the office for a few days and be inspired by case studies from organizations like the Office of Management and Budget, Canadian Defence, Rare, and many others.

8. It's a perfect excuse to take a few days before or after the summit and explore Washington, DC's great museums, monuments, restaurants, and shopping.

7. You will learn from the experts and come away with practical advice at in-depth pre-conference clinics on Balanced Scorecard, Risk Management, Organizational Alignment, and Meeting Management.

6. Get your Balanced Scorecard and Strategy Map checked out for free by Ascendant's staff of expert consultants -- most of whom have over 10 years experience working directly with Drs. Kaplan and Norton.

5. Mingle with colleagues from around the world at fully hosted networking receptions in the First Amendment Lounge at the National Press Club.

4. Learn from people who have "been there and done that" during breakout sessions that focus on governance, performance management, and transparency.

3. Get to know the secrets of breakthrough performance from four Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame companies that are presenting in plenary sessions.

2. Come away from the summit with practical advice and tangible next steps to drive strategy execution and performance management in your organization.

1. Meet best selling authors and strategy gurus Dave Norton and Dan Pink in an exclusive book signing / Q&A session immediately following the first day of the event.

The Mission Driven Management Summit is an exceptional opportunity to learn from performance management gurus -- Dan Pink and Dave Norton -- and from leading organizations, just like yours, that are putting these concepts to work. It's the only event of its kind in North America that features case studies from Hall of Fame social and public sector organizations.
