Developing Strategy Maps
Mapping Strategy with the Balanced Scorecard concentrates on how to translate strategy into operational terms; create a strategy map; design a scorecard; identify measures, targets, and initiatives; achieve executive leadership consensus and buy-in; and build on an existing scorecard initiative. This training introduces the potential of the Balanced Scorecard Strategy Map as the foundation of a strategy-focused organization.
Cascading Strategy with the Balanced Scorecard
Cascading Strategy with the Balanced Scorecard addresses the function and importance of organizational alignment in executing strategy; details and explains organizational and individual alignment methods; vertical alignment—cascading, horizontal alignment—between peer business and/or support units; communicating the Balanced Scorecard across the organization; strategic job families; making strategy everyone’s job; and aligning performance management systems—rewards and incentive compensation. Effective cascading creates synergy in an organization where the whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts.
