Cary, NC (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
The Balanced Scorecard Institute (BSI) announced that it will be partnering with UK-based business performance management consultancy Intrafocus to provide Balanced Scorecard Professional certification courses in the UK and Ireland. The two courses that will be offered include the five-day Balanced Scorecard ProfessionalTM (BSP) Certification Boot Camp and the five-day Balanced Scorecard Master ProfessionalTM (BSMP) Certification Application course.
The BSI program, offered in association with the George Washington University College of Professional Studies, is the premier worldwide certification for Balanced Scorecard practitioners and has over 1,800 alumni worldwide since its founding in 2006. It is already offered in dozens of locations around the world. The program focuses on balanced scorecard-based strategic planning and management using BSI’s Nine Steps to SuccessTM methodology. It was developed by BSI for executives and members of balanced scorecard teams who want to learn how to build, deploy, and sustain scorecard systems in order to improve organizational strategic performance, focus and alignment. BSI training is for anyone who wants to incorporate lessons learned and best practices into the development of a strategic management process, or for anyone who has an existing scorecard and wants to turn it into a robust strategic planning and management system.
“We are delighted to partner with Intrafocus,” said Howard Rohm, BSI Co-Founder and CEO. “They have brought a new dimension to our courses through their local expertise and existing knowledge of our methodology.”
