The latest survey results are in!

Thank you to everyone who completed the 2016 Balanced Scorecard Usage Survey!

A few comments from this years participants:

“In just a few years, the use of balanced scorecards has brought the company a long way in terms of getting all divisions, and people within those divisions,working together, on the same page, toward common goals.”

“It has helped the staff to focus on what matters in order to improve organisational performance.”

“As usual we are meeting everyday with challenges of implementation. Value is huge but we are still struggling to get buy in, even from higher level management people.”

The full results can now be downloaded. To keep up with 2GC news and be the first to receive survey information please sign up to our newsletter on the Contact Us page. As last year, the 2016 survey was being undertaken in collaboration with Intrafocus, corporate performance management software reseller.

The Balanced Scorecard is one of the world’s top-ten management frameworks and has been the number one framework for Performance Management since its introduction in the early 1990’s. But despite this popularity, little is known about which organisations use Balanced Scorecard, what they use it for, and how useful it is in practice. The better we understand what people use Balanced Scorecard for, the better we can make the tool itself, and the methods we use to create and maintain them.

Together we can make future surveys even better!

The 8th annual survey will be open in the second half of 2016. To be kept informed of the results and launch of the survey please join our mailing list, or subscribe to one of our social media feeds. More info here.
