BSI and Spider’s first annual Users Conference will focus on attendees’ experiences with strategic planning and management, performance analysis, and strategy execution using balanced scorecard systems, as well as the QuickScore™ Performance Information System (QuickScore). The conference will feature lessons learned and best practices from the two company’s experience in 80 countries around the world--lessons that will help attendees develop a more robust planning and management system, better execute strategy, and drive improved performance through automation and performance analysis.
The conference will focus on engaging and supporting the BSI and Spider user communities, which include anyone using the balanced scorecard, users of BSI’s Nine Steps to Success™ strategic planning and management methodology, readers of BSI’s new book, The Institute Way: Strategic Planning and Management with the Balanced Scorecard, or anyone using the Spider Strategies performance measurement and management software solution. Discussions and demonstrations on specific topics of interest will be led by industry thought leaders, including senior officers and associates from BSI and Spider Strategies, as well as actual users that will share their real life experiences. QuickScore™ users attending will be the first to catch the latest software updates when they are revealed at the conference by Spider Strategies, as well as participate in the first customer driven feedback forum on desired new features for QuickScore™.
The beachside venue for the event includes an 18-hole championship course, a lazy river, full-service spa, a water playground, and a 50,000-square-foot health club. Conference activities being planned include a golf tournament, a spa day, and various networking activities to help attendees get to know and learn from each other.
For those who would like to dig deeper into performance management issues, there will also be a few workshops on advanced topics, such as advanced performance measurement development using Stacey Barr’s PuMP® framework, strategic process improvement and advanced balanced scorecard problem solving.
