Paul Niven is a management consultant, author, and noted speaker on the subjects of Strategy,  Strategy Execution, Objectives and Key Results (OKRs), and Balanced Scorecard. As both a  practitioner and Consultant he has developed successful strategy execution systems for clients  large and small in a wide variety of organizations, including Fortune 1000 companies, public  sector, and nonprofit agencies. Paul is the founder of both and The Senalosa  Group. Since 2001, the companies have assisted over five hundred organizations around across  the globe effectively execute their strategy. 

Unlike many consultants who have little “hands-on” background, Paul’s experience was formed  actually creating strategy execution frameworks while still in industry. In the mid 1990s he was  employed by a large electric utility that was an early adopter of the Balanced Scorecard system.  Paul saw first-hand the power of communicating strategy through objectives and key results, and  providing teams the opportunity to demonstrate their unique contributions to success. After  leading the organization into the Balanced Scorecard Hall of Fame Paul transitioned full-time to  management consulting, first with KPMG and later, CSC.  

Paul has always enjoyed writing and in 2001 was approached by editors at John Wiley and Sons to write a practical “how-to” book on implementing the Balanced Scorecard. The subsequent book “Balanced Scorecard Step-by-Step: Maximizing Performance and Maintaining Results,” has since been translated in over 15 languages around the world and continues to be a trusted guide for organizations utilizing the Scorecard approach. Paul subsequently wrote three additional books on the Balanced Scorecard and a business fable, “Roadmaps and Revelations,” designed to take the mystery out of the strategic planning process. Paul’s most recent book, co authored with Ben Lamorte is “Objectives and Key Results: Driving Focus, Alignment, and  Engagement with OKRs,” a practical guide to creating OKRs. Shortly after the publication of his first book Paul formed his training and consulting firm, The Senalosa Group.
