Balanced Scorecards for the 21st Century

Filed under: Uncategorized — stefangeorgescu @ 8:48 pm

Back in 1992, Robert Kaplan and David Norton introduced the balanced scorecard methodology for organisations to link current actions to their long-term goals.  Balanced scorecards are significantly more than a method of reviewing past performance –  they are increasingly a tool in helping organisations determine the most effective strategy for improving the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations.

You can hear the latest thinking on performance management from Robert Kaplan at Microsoft’s upcoming launch of our new business intelligence software – PerformancePoint Server.  Microsoft PerformancePoint Server  includes business scorecarding, analytics, and planning to help organisations manage their operations and plan their future strategy based on the latest intelligence and  in-depth understanding of their operations.

The Microsoft PerformancePoint Server launch, with a keynote address from Robert Kaplan (Professor of Leadership Development at Harvard University), will be held  at Vinopolis in London on Tuesday 16th October. If you would like to hear from Robert Kaplan and find out more about the scorecarding, analytics and planning capabilities of Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007, register your interest in attending the launch here.
