Balanced Scorecard

Your success depends on making strategy-execution everyone’s everyday job

The Balanced Scorecard translates strategy into operational terms and provides on-going monitoring and measuring of your progress

A Balanced View

Changing how we view performance

It’s hard to believe our initial work that resulted in the Balanced Scorecard articles and books was over 30 years ago, yet the underlying problems we were trying to solve still exist in many organizations:

  • Dollars are the wrong way to measure how organizations create value.
  • We are still using lagging measures – not ones that better predict future performance (leading measures).
  • Organizations are still bound by annual budget cycles (making it tough to get support for multi-year projects), the crazy need to make quarter-end numbers, and the lack of relationship between what you do and your annual performance review.

Over the last 30 years, the Balanced Scorecard body of knowledge has brought some really cool tools to organizations – tools like strategy maps, weightings, and Ontologies. It has found itself integrated with budgeting, process-improvement, risk, and sustainability, and has supported the creation of related practices, such as OKRs. Almost every organization we work with has some elements of the Balanced Scorecard in place already.

Building a Better Scorecard

You already have the building blocks

When we were working with Kaplan and Norton we took 6 months to build a scorecard... we can now do it in 5 days. Over the last 30 years we have been continuously improving how we build scorecards – bringing new tools, taking advantage of what you have already built, and leveraging the current abundance of information available in every organization. Our clients have enjoyed incredible results leading to billions of dollars of increased valuation and because of this ask us back, or take us with them as they go to new organizations. Drs. Kaplan and Norton have also used our clients as world-class examples in every one of their books.

We deliver our scorecard services in exciting workshops that both trains your team, and builds your scorecard solution. We can also provide on-going coaching and meeting facilitation until you get the swing of things.
