This session will go over how to construct a balanced scorecard. We will cover how to survey the key deliverables for success, how to measure them, how to set standards, and how to assign values to each. The balanced scorecard is not new. However, not enough companies are using it.

Why Should Attend
Organizations today have many performance requirements. It is just not as simple as focusing on delivering more sales or keeping the department staffed. Getting and maintaining top performance in multiple categories means that managers must have multiple focuses.
The goals of the organization including the rewards systems must be aligned with these “BALANCED” results. If a balanced approach is not followed an employee may focus one thing at the expense of another. For example, a total focus on increased profits could result in a slide in customer service and customer loyalty. The balanced scorecard measures a composite of all of the necessary elements of responsibility for a person, department, and organization. Used properly it will drive success in the organization.
