Balanced Scorecard Professional Certification Part 2: Advanced Balanced Scorecard

Course 401 - 2 Days
Price: $1,970

This course covers our Nine Steps to SuccessTM balanced scorecard methodology, but goes much deeper than the Part 1 course, providing more tools and techniques to help managers and analysts build, deploy, and sustain a scorecard system in their organization. The BSP Certification Pt. 1: Introduction to the Balanced Scorecard is required before taking this course, as this course builds on that introductory knowledge by focusing on common scorecard development difficulties and nuances found in real world organizations that have implemented the Nine Step framework. This course provides a quick review of basic scorecard building steps, adds advanced building techniques, and goes in depth with cascading a scorecard system throughout an organization and evaluating the impact of the scorecard system and making corrections. The course includes additional focus on change management and strategic facilitation of teams. In addition to the two days of class, participants are given free access to the BSP certification exam. Print a Brochure

Prerequisite
The Institute’s BSP Pt. 1: Introduction to the Balanced Scorecard course is a prerequisite for this course, as it covers the basic Nine Step methodology for building and implementing a balanced scorecard and is the fundamental starting point for anyone interested in scorecard development, even for students that have advanced knowledge and experience implementing scorecards based on their own research or by working with other methodologies. This Pt. 2: Advanced course builds on that knowledge by focusing on common scorecard development difficulties and nuances found in real world organizations that have implemented the Nine Step framework.
