ISC Live Lab Co-investment and Return on Co-investment

Context.  In 2000, we were writing the book Managing from Clarity, and strategic measurement into our strategic systems process.

Co-investment.  In this long-term project with the water authority of Leon (Mexico), we co-invested our intellectual property of strategic systems thinking and practical strategic  measurement systems.

Return on Co-investment.  The return on this co-investment was the use of strategic systems mapping within a strategic measurement system to lead change with multiple stakeholders.
