The Balanced Scorecard (Kaplan and Norton) has emerged as the tool of choice for organisations wishing to successfully implement strategy (see our discussion paper Building a Balanced Scorecard).

The Balanced Scorecard helps managers articulate the strategic destination and road map for their organisation, and monitor the activities required for their achievement. The purpose therefore shifts from tracking performance of a process and monitoring whether or not objectives have been set to determining which of the planned actions to achieve the objectives are working.

Whether we help you get started, support implementation or guide you to getting your heads around putting the right measures in place – we can enable your business develop a world-class Balanced Scorecard system.
