Balanced Scorecard and Results-Based Management: Convergent Performance Management Systems

This paper compares and contrasts two of the most widely adopted Performance Management (PM) frameworks – Balanced Scorecard and Results-Based Management.

It reviews the frameworks’ origins and evolutionary paths, and examines the resulting differences in practical application. Two case studies are presented; one examines Results-Based Management implementation within a global UN agency, the other describes the building of a 3rd Generation Balanced Scorecard in a Middle Eastern government ministry. The authors propose that the two frameworks are converging in terms of the approaches used for framework design and implementation.
