I am a big believer in creating an overall score card for an organization and measuring performance against it. The Balanced Scorecard remains one of the best ways to accomplish that goal for an organization. I recently found a great set of tools from Mark Graham Brown that simplify getting started. I especially like the Excel Templates. You will also find Supplemental Materials => Excel Model | PowerPoint | Case Study | Workshop | Project Plan | White Paper. If you’d like to get a broad overview of the Balanced Scorecard, there is also online training and how to guides (I’ve not looked at these, but expect they match the quality of the other tools.) => online | take exam | pdf | exe file | word. So what are you waiting for, get started on actively managing your company’s strategy today. I’ll share more on how to move beyond excel designs in a later post as I review some promising cloud tools.
