BSC Designer is a performance management software. It supports the Balanced Scorecard framework, which according to yearly studies continues to be one of the most popular tools for planning and executing a business strategy.The heart of the Balanced Scorecard is a strategy map. BSC Designer allows you to design state-of-the-art strategy maps, representing your business objectives and the cause-and-effect relationships between them.
For a top manager, the strategy map plays the role of a performance management and monitoring dashboard:
The Balanced Scorecard suggests four perspectives.
Each of these perspectives includes business objectives.
These objectives, in turn, are linked to each other with cause-and-effect relationships.
KPIs attached to each of these objectives measure your business performance, or your progress toward your strategic goals.
The stop-light of the KPI indicates your current performance and progress levels.
In the end, your business goals are clearly linked to detailed action plans.
Using the strategy map?
You can use the strategy map in several ways.
The strategy map also helps to align actions with business goals, so employees can understand their role. They can think of their work as ?helping the company to achieve its objectives,? rather than simply ?doing my job.? Learn more about alignment.
