Master's Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,7, London School of Economics and Political Science, 25 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The Balanced Scorecard is designed and implemented as a strategic management and measurement system. It uses a broad range of innovative indicators and enfolds the overall strategy. Especially, it has extensive implications on human resource processes and its strategic orientation within a company. The development and implementation of a complete BSC is associated with the parallel adoption of a high-performance-work-system and a long-term orientated HR-strategy. With support of the BSC, human resource management becomes a partner with business, which manages its employees as adding value assets and includes HRM in business strategy. HRM gains in importance and makes an essential contribution to the business-wide human resource and organisation development. Empirical results show that it is possible to successfully implement the BSC and the involved long-term orientated HR-strategy in both already long-term and stakeholder orientated enterprises and previously short-term and shareholder orientated companies. Different researchers verified that the implementation of a BSC by simultaneous use of a HPWS is associated with an essential improvement of business performance and development as well as better financial results and higher profitability.
