The Hall of Fame honors organisations that have achieved outstanding performance using the Balanced Scorecard, a strategy management framework created by Palladium founders Drs. Robert Kaplan and David Norton. Past honorees include 194 organizations from nearly 40 countries, including corporations, government entities, and non-profits.
Palladium CEO John McClellan said, "Fourteen winners, twelve countries, five continents: These are organizations that have achieved true mastery. Joining the Hall of Fame is a prestigious global honor, awarded to a very limited number of elite organizations who have achieved and sustained breakthrough performance through use of the Kaplan-Norton Strategy management system."
Kelda Water Services is a public-private partnership that provides potable water, treats waste water, and provides fire-fighting systems to more than 1,000 locations in the UK. In 2009 Robert Marrill, formerly of Hall of Fame winner HSBC Rail, became MD and elected to use this framework to transform the business. KWS Defence MD Robert Marrill said "I am extremely proud of the achievements of everyone in the business over the last four years. The strategy management framework has provided a very effective approach to clarify and align and manage the business helping us deliver significant benefits for customers, shareholders and colleagues".
