Balanced Scorecard

 

A Balanced Scorecard approach that generally has four perspectives:

  1. Financial
  2. Internal business processes
  3. Learning & Growth (human focus, or learning and development)
  4. Customer

Each of the four perspectives is inter-dependent – improvement in just one area is not necessarily a recipe for success in the other areas.
