About this template
What is a Balanced Scorecard Template?
The Balanced Scorecard is one of the best-known strategy frameworks ever created. The Balanced Scorecard essentially calls for organizations to create a set of internal metrics that will help them to assess their business performance in 4 key areas (referred to as 'perspectives'):
Financial perspective: This perspective focuses on the financial performance of the organization, such as profitability, revenue growth, and return on investment.
Customer perspective: This perspective looks at how the organization is performing from the customer's point of view, including customer satisfaction, retention, and loyalty.
Internal process perspective: This perspective focuses on the organization's internal processes and operations, such as efficiency, quality, and productivity.
Learning and growth perspective: This perspective looks at the organization's ability to learn and grow, including employee development, innovation, and organizational culture.
The Balanced Scorecard framework helps organizations to align their strategic objectives with their day-to-day activities, and to track and monitor their progress towards those objectives. It can be used as part of an organization's strategic planning process to identify improvement areas and make data-driven decisions. Many companies and organizations use a Balanced Scorecard template to help them implement the framework.
