A practical, easy-to-understand guide to Balanced Scorecard for busy business leaders

The Balanced Scorecard method is an analysis technique designed to translate an organization's mission and vision statement and overall business strategies into specific, quantifiable goals, and to monitor the organization's performance in achieving these goals. Much less technology driven then other analysis approaches, it analyzes an organization's overall performance in four regards: financial analysis, customer service, productivity and internal analysis, and employee growth and satisfaction. Balanced Scorecard Strategy For Dummies breaks down the basics of Balanced Scorecard in simple language with practical, Dummies-style guidance on getting it done. This book covers all the basics of Balanced Scorecard for busy executives and managers-and does it without the high price tag of most professional level Balanced Scorecard guides.

The book is written in a clear and easy to understand style and goes well beyond the theory, to practical tips and methods for creating Strategy Maps, Scorecards and Dashboards that make sense. Especially like the "catch-ball" process for cascading scorecards and metrics with drill-down/up capability among the Strategic, Operational and Tactical levels. Highly recommended to anyone involved with Balanced Scorecards and Dashboards.

My first reading from the "for Dummies" series. Like the configuration so much, I already have gotten another two books from the same series about other subjects. Already to have found out it will be easy reading, written in a comprehensible manner.
