Program Summary:

The balanced scorecard (BSC) is now about 20 years old, and it has continued to grow in popularity among all kinds of organizations as a better way to do strategic planning and performance management.  This talk will explore its roots in the Quality movement, its current structure, and possible future directions.  We will show how the BSC complements, but does not compete with quality systems.  We welcome discussion from the audience after the presentation.
