Intrafocus, who partnered with the Balanced Scorecard Institute earlier this year, has just completed a series of Insight articles on Strategic Planning. The articles follow and summarise the Institute’s Nine Steps to Success™ methodology that defines how a Balanced Scorecard should be implemented. There are 10 articles in the series, one for each step and a summary. They form a perfect introduction for those people who want to learn more about the Balanced Scorecard methodology.
“Intrafocus Insight was established nearly three years ago and has proven to be a very popular resource for anyone involved in strategic planning and management,” says Intrafocus “We are delighted with this new series and hope it will be useful to both executives and Balanced Scorecard practitioners in the field.”
The nine step methodology has become widely recognised as a standard approach to strategic planning and management. It draws heavily upon the Balanced Scorecard as the underlying mechanism to provide structure and accountability. The methodology recognises that automation plays a huge part in the process. In today’s business environment it is seen as an absolute requirement to use specialised technology to ensure competitiveness.
For a much more detailed look at the Nine Steps to Success™, Intrafocus highly recommends the Balanced Scorecard Institute’s book ‘The Institute Way.’ Intrafocus and the Balanced Scorecard Institute also offer Balanced Scorecard Professional and Master Certification classes. The classes last five days and cover not only the nine steps but provide insights into real implementations, the successes and pitfalls. The next class will be held in London between June 9th and June 13th 2014.
