Balanced Scorecard Training Video
A Balanced Scorecard is a model that summarizes an organization’s high-level strategic goals, initiatives designed to reach those goals, and metrics, or key performance indicators, that monitor success over time, and shows how they are connected to the mission, vision, and core values of the organization. It is a strategic planning tool used ubiquitously in organizational management that clearly and concisely communicates what the organization has set out to achieve and how it proposes to do it.
Description of Balanced Scorecard
Balanced Scorecards typically include four areas of strategic focus, including financial sustainability, customer experience, internal processes and structures, and workforce culture, learning, and development. Focusing on these four overarching components gives you a balanced perspective of your organization’s health. It also provides a methodology for breaking down a large-scale vision and strategy into categories and activities that become actionable and measurable. Balanced Scorecards are unique in that they help you visualize in a straightforward manner how an organization’s high-level strategy drives the day-to-day priorities and desired outcomes and the measure of your success along the way.
