Balanced scorecards – focus on the most critical goals

EQS Balanced Scorecard (BSC) minimizes the information abundance by using indicators in order to help you to focus on the most critical goals. The tool enables measurement of achievement in relation to the objectives and fills the gap which often occurs between the overall objectives and practical implementation in the organization.

Status of key figures can be presented as color codes or traffic lights. It provides a user-friendly presentation that is easy to communicate to all employees.

EQS Indicator gives you the status of how your business is in relation to what goals are set. Traffic light indicators enables you to quickly get an impression of the situation without having to go deep into each area. It makes it easier to see where action needs to be taken.

A survey done by Deloitte shows that only 5% of the employees understand the company’s strategy and that less than 10% of the strategies are implemented in a good way. This is supported by the fact that 60% of the business has little or no link between strategy and budget, and that 92% of the companies do not report on leading indicators.

Balanced Scorecards provides better decisions

The tool contributes to better decisions because you get quick access to relevant data. EQS handles both economic and non-economic objectives. Measurement data is entered via control cards (scorecards) that are dynamic forms. The collected data is then gathered in a base that provides the basis for further analysis and reporting. The actual measurement data is then compared with the target for the business. Information about how the organization stands in relation to achieving the strategic objectives can then easily be retrieved.
