Balanced Scorecard   (local copy)

The Balanced Scorecard, according to Harvard Business School professor Robert Kaplan, translates a company's vision and strategy into a coherent set of performance measures. The Balanced Scorecard prescribes four perspectives:

  • customer knowledge
  • internal business processes
  • learning and growth

These four perspectives offer a balance between short-term and long-term objectives, between outcomes desired and performance drivers of those outcomes, and between hard, objective measures and softer, more subjective measures.
