Overview

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.

Balanced Scorecard Strategy for Dummies 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

The rating by "anaonymous" giving the book one star was written by Mihai Ionescu in retaliation for his being removed from the Balanced Scorecard and Dashboard Group on LinkedIn. Coauthors of the book removed him for inappropriate postings against software providers after he had what he claims to be a bad experience with them. He also posted the same review to Amazon, which amazon removed from their site. I encourage those who read Mr. Ionescu's "anonymous" review to keep this in mind as they read it and determine the value of the review.

This book takes Balanced Scorecards and Dashboards to the next level beyond Kaplan and Norton. This is the only book on Balanced Scorecards that I have found that integrates the Strategy Maps and Scorecards with the day-to-day Operational and Tactical Levels of the organization. The authors do a great job of breaking the Balanced Scorecard and Dashboards into an easy to understand, yet powerful presentation. A great book for anyone that uses or wants to know more about Balanced Scorecards and Dashboards.

For those of us involved in business performance measurement, this book has been a long time coming and will be an absolute 'must' for savy Lean Leaders and Continuous Improvement afficionados.

This is probably the worst book about Balanced Scorecard that I have ever seen. Full of generalities and including basic errors, like calling the BSC perspectives "legs". I think the authors pay a great disservice to the BSC domain, because people buying the books of the "... for Dummies" series believe that they were supposed to be written by experts of that domain, capable of explaining the correct concepts, but in an easier to understand manner. Unfortunately, that doesn't include inventing a new basic terminology for that domain.
