The Balanced Scorecard (BSC) is a strategic planning and management system that is used extensively in business and industry, government, and nonprofit organizations worldwide to align business activities to the vision and strategy of the organization, improve internal and external communications, and monitor organization performance against strategic goals.
It was originated as a performance measurement framework that added strategic non-financial performance measures to traditional financial metrics to give managers and executives a more “balanced” view of organizational performance. The Balanced Scorecard has evolved considerably from its roots as a measure selection framework. Nowadays, it is one of the main frameworks to guarantee corporate alignment and business performance within organizations through scorecards and dashboards that provide drill down / up capability to identify sources and root causes for under-performing metrics in all levels and departments.
