Balanced Scorecards: Maintaining Effectiveness

"You should be able to tell from your Scorecard what your IT department's strategy is." Balanced KPI Scorecards, Forum report, 2007



How do you design a balanced scorecard to continually drive the service forward? Once implemented, how can effectiveness best be maintained?

Whether your IT services are delivered internally or by a third party, it's vital that performance and the perception of the service are measured. Balanced Scorecards can be used to drive improvement, but only with appropriate design and management. Getting the Business and stakeholders to buy-in is critical, and bringing in representative measures of 'softer' elements such as staff and communications is vital if your aim is to effect behavioural change.

Consequently, many organisations find themselves reviewing the effectiveness of their Balanced Scorecards - do they meet the goals for which they were originally instigated? How should such a review take place? Attendees at this workshop will benefit from a presentation which addresses just this question.
