Intrafocus joins with the Balanced Scorecard Institute and Gorge Washington University to offer Professional Certification
April 10, 2018 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsIntrafocus has joined forces with the Balanced Scorecard Institute (BSI) and The George Washington University (GWU) to offer a Balanced Scorecard Professional (BSP) certification course in London from July 2nd to 6th 2018.
The Balanced Scorecard Professional course has been developed for practitioners and members of balanced scorecard teams who want to learn how to build, deploy, and sustain scorecard systems. It is also for professionals who have an existing scorecard who want to turn it into a robust automated system. Content focuses on Balanced Scorecard strategic planning and management and is fully consistent with the basic concepts and terminology originated by Drs. Kaplan & Norton.
"Professional certification is vital in this field," says Clive Keyte, Managing Director at Intrafocus. "Measurement systems like the Balanced Scorecard are an integral part of an organisations strategy. Without it, there can be no proof that a strategy has succeeded or failed."
The course focuses on the strategic intent of a company or organisation and how to build meaningful strategic objectives and key performance indicators (KPI). Unlike other courses that cover this topic, the activities are 50% team based working on real-world examples. The feedback from previous attendees has demonstrated that these team interactions are the most valuable aspect of the course.
Certification is awarded by the George Washington University College of Professional Studies and the Balanced Scorecard Institute, the original certifying body for balanced scorecard professionals worldwide.
