Balanced Scorecards & Strategy Maps

BACKGROUND

In today’s challenging financial environment there is a fundamental imperative for any organisation to be able to develop a clear strategy for its future success and to deliver on this strtaegy. Too often, however, organisations spend time developing strategies and business plans that fail to be implemented successfully. The use of strategy maps and balanced scorecard enables organisations to clarify their vision and strategy and translate them into actions at all levels within an organisation. When fully deployed, the use of strategy maps and the balanced scorecard transforms strategic planning from an academic exercise into the driving force of an enterprise.

The aim of this session is to introduce the principles of Strategy Maps and the Balanced Scorecard and show how they can be used to develop and align objectives and targets, monitor performance and drive improvement.

It will allow you to understand the key elements and aims of strategy maps and the balanced scorecard and how to use and implement them, in an integrated manner, to manage and measure organisational performance.
