Balanced Scorecard is a strategic tool that allows managers and directors to get a top down view of their organization and the execution of its activities. For maximum output, it should be used to help re-focus the top managerial employees that are in-charge of others, but many times employers overuse this tool by applying it to all the employees, which would further confuse and distract them.
The balanced scorecard allows for there to be a clear vision that can be translated into an activity-driven production plan, that can further be measured for its successful implementation. This is then converted into individual targets and goals, allowing for an integrated and immersive schedule.
