The Balanced Scorecard: Achieving Performance Excellence

Why Attend

Aligning business activities to a company's vision and strategy is a must to ensure operational excellence. This is easier said than done, since this will require specific processes to communicate objectives in a clear manner to all stakeholders, and a robust system to monitor the organization's performance against strategic goals from all perspectives.

The balanced scorecard which was developed by Dr. Robert Kaplan (Harvard Business School) and Dr. David Norton ensures the above are met. In this hands-on course, and after presenting the balanced scorecard elements including vision, mission, goals, objectives, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), targets and initiatives, participants will have the chance to build the balanced scorecard for a virtual company using a tested step-by-step model.
