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.
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.
