As Part 2 of the Building and Implementing a Balanced Scorecard series, this workshop adds depth to the Introduction to the Balanced Scorecard course. It builds on the Introductory content by focusing on common scorecard development difficulties and nuances found in real world organizations that have implemented the Nine Step framework. It delves deeper into the subjects our trainees have been asking for: strategic thinking, practical examples, details on cascading, budgeting, change management, facilitation evaluation and other advanced topics. This course is taught by our most senior staff. Topics covered by the course include:
- How to think strategically and avoid getting bogged down in tactical details

The Institute’s BSP Pt. 1: Introduction to the Balanced Scorecard course is a prerequisite for this course, as it covers the basic Nine Step methodology for building and implementing a balanced scorecard and is the fundamental starting point for anyone interested in scorecard development, even for students that have advanced knowledge and experience implementing scorecards based on their own research or by working with other methodologies. This Pt. 2: Advanced course builds on that knowledge by focusing on common scorecard development difficulties and nuances found in real world organizations that have implemented the Nine Step framework.
