financial performance measures
Financial Performance Measures
  • Some monetary measurement of income is used by virtually all businesses to assess performance
  • Financial measures do not address issues of competitive reality
  • Typical financial measures:
    • 1) Cash flow
    • 2) Return on Investment
    • 3) Residual Income
    • 4) Economic Value Added
problems with financial measures
Problems with Financial Measures
  • 1) Overly aggregate
  • 2) Not Timely
  • 3) Backward looking (lagging)
  • 4) Promote dysfunctional behavior in the short term.
  • 5) Difficulties in placing a reliable financial link to the value of intangible assets have prevented them from being recognized on a company’s balance sheet
    • To achieve success in the information era intangible assets are critical for success
    • Traditional performance measures are insufficient to measure intangibles and future oriented measures
nonfinancial performance measures
Nonfinancial Performance Measures
  • Because what gets measured gets improved, non- performance measure are critical for success
  • Challenged to develop a set of measures that capture critical success factors
  • A larger scope of nonfinancial performance measures relate to critical success factors.
  • Non financial performance measures
    • create shareholder wealth
    • better predict future cash flows (leading)
    • are being used increasingly instead of traditional systems
the balanced scorecard
The Balanced Scorecard
  • The Balanced Scorecard (BSC) provides a system for measuring and managing all aspects of a company’s performance
  • The scorecard balances traditional financial measures of success, such as profits and return on capital, with non-financial measures of the drivers of future financial performance

implementation vision

Implementation: Vision

Implementation: Vision
  • Before determining the objectives and measures, an organization should already have a vision
  • A concise statement that defines the mid to long-term (3 - 10 year) goals of the organization
  • The vision should be external and market-oriented and should express, often in colorful or “visionary” terms, how the organization wants to be perceived by the world
implementation mission statement
Implementation: Mission Statement
  • A concise, internally-focused statement of how the organization expects to compete and deliver value to customers
  • It often states the reason for the organization’s existence, the basic purpose towards which its activities are directed, and the values that guide employee’s activities
  • These statements are far too vague to guide day-to-day actions and resource allocation decisions
implementation objectives
Implementation: Objectives
  • Are concise statements that articulate what the organization hopes to accomplish
  • Tell the story of the strategy through the cause-and-effect relationships in each of the four balanced scorecard perspectives
  • The company’s balanced scorecard would typically contain an extensive (3-5 sentence) description of each objective
implementation measures
Implementation: Measures
  • Measures describe how success in achieving an objective will be determined
  • Provide specificity and reduce the ambiguity that is inherent in word statements
  • Specifying exactly how an objective is measured will give employees a clear focus for their improvement efforts
implementation targets
Implementation: Targets
  • Once the objectives have been translated into measures, managers select targets for each measure
  • Targets establish the level of performance or rate of improvement required for a measure
  • Should be set to represent excellent performance
  • Should, if achieved, place the company as one of the best performers in its industry
    • Even more important would be to choose targets that create distinctive value for customers and shareholders

People & Knowledge

bsc benefits
BSC: Benefits
  • Expresses an organization's mission and strategy
  • Captures both leading and lagging measures
  • Communicate strategy to employees
    • Impact at individual level
  • Motivate and evaluate performance
bsc pitfalls
BSC: Pitfalls
  • As with any new technology or management tool, not all BSC implementations have been successful
  • Several design factors can lead to problems and disappointment when applying the BSC
    • Too few measures in the scorecard
    • Too many measures
      • Attention is diffused, and insufficient attention is given to those few measures that make the greatest impact
    • The drivers in the Internal and Learning & Growth perspectives don't link to the desired outcomes in the Financial and Customer perspective
bsc pitfalls cont d
BSC: Pitfalls (cont’d)
  • Senior management is not committed, and the BSC project is delegated to middle management
  • One senior manager builds the scorecard alone
  • Senior executives feel that only they need to know and understand the strategy, and BSC responsibilities don't filter down
  • The BSC is treated as a one-time event that requires the perfect scorecard for implementation
  • The BSC is treated as a systems project rather than as a management project
