The Next Step in Business Intelligence and Management: Balanced Scorecard for IPad
March 09, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsMadrid, March 9, 2011—It's no secret that iPad has become one of the best delivery tools for business intelligence (BI), management and financial. Its form, lightweight design, and connectivity has caused rapid adoption by companies that need to extend the reach of their business intelligence data and provide pervasive access to performance results. Indeed, the executive suite and top managers have seen how accessibility to performance results can improve operations and increase management productivity.
The modern version of the balanced scorecard system transforms an organization's strategic plan from an attractive but passive document into the "marching orders" for the organization on a daily basis.
It provides a framework that not only provides performance measurements, but helps business planners identify what should be done as well as what should be measured. It enables executives to truly execute their strategies.
The concept of the balanced scorecard is not new, it is a methodology developed by Dr. Robert Kaplan and Dr. David Norton of Harvard Business School. The system is used by seventy-five percent of Fortune 500 companies to develop, monitor and measure their company's performance against their strategic goals.
Very few other businesses are controlled with this method of aligning actions with company goals and visions. The launch of Balanced Scorecard means that companies of all sizes are now able to take advantage of the same management tools previously used by only corporations and government.
Sometimes less is more. ironically, iPad has proven this. A comprehensive balanced scorecard implementation running on a desktop or laptop is probably useful to certain managers. However, most managerial and executive roles would likely benefit from a lightweight implementation even if it wasn't a comprehensive solution. This is what Business and Strategy (BsC) is betting on.
