Balanced Scorecard for University
Otera Chris, Manager, Kenya, Member
I am intending to develop a balanced scorecard for a university set up, however I have no idea where to start from. Looking for like minds to discuss the same with me.
 

 
Balanced Scorecard for University - You Totally Can!
Ofelia Bellati, Argentina, Member
Dear Chris,
BSC can be used for many areas. I know of cases where it was implemented in private companies, in public administrations, and many others. It is just a matter of finding your way. May be we could develop it together. Please, get in touch with me.
 

 
Balanced Scorecard University
Gaia Bassani, Italy, Member
Hi! I'm a PHD student and my field of study is everything about performance measurement. I have read a lot about BSC: it's my passion!
Why we don't try to have a common project about Balanced Scorecard in our universities? I think that the processes could be different, because in our country probably they are, and surely the measures are different. It could be very interesting! What do you think about collaboration? Could it be possible?

I recommend you purchase Kaplan and Norton's books on the Balanced Scorecard. Or, Google 'Balanced Scorecard' as there is a wealth of guidance published on the I have an extra copy of the first book on this and could mail it to you if you wish. The BSC is not an easy concept to engage and even if you don't use it you will find that it made you think and this will be helpful in whatever you eventually do.
 

 
Theoretical Suggestions
Gaia Bassani, Italy, Member
K&N book of 2004? I know that one, it's a compass about theoretical aspects and implementation. I don't know Google Balanced Scorecard, but surely I'm interested in.
I know that it's a difficult concept, above all the implementation.
 

 
BSC and Planning
Sergio Leite, Analyst, Brazil, Member
Hi, Otera Chris. The BSC is a methodology to give managers a system of performance measures, which must be connected to the organization's strategy.
So it is a form of control that should give feedback to the planning system, where the main goals now are to be defined. The point of connection between planning and the BSC will be represented by targets related to these goals, which should in turn be related to their work units, as in a cascade. These targets will form the basis for establishing performance measures.
Objectives and goals of the units must be prepared by their teams to develop their activities. Similarly measures of performance scorecards should be extended to levels of the departments and their members. I recommend you read the Kaplan & Norton and / or some text related to the BSC and strategic planning. Feel free to contact me if you wish. I hope I have contributed.
 

 
Challenges to Implement Balanced Scorecard in Universities
Otera Chris, Manager, Kenya, Member
Fellow chaps, thanks a lot for the immense assistance in understanding this matter. I have read and followed your discussion and they were great.
May be to take the notch higher, what are some of the challenges in management of change of performance measurements that some of you have experienced in implementing BSC in your respective institution?
 

 
Balanced Scorecard for University

Dear Otera Chris, I have just started on a research proposal on unemployed graduates and also considering BSC to the university system. I can brief you on the process once I start on it. Have you done any ground work related to implementing BSC to university?

Note that there are several universities that have successfuly implemented BSC (a Google search will identify several). They are good references for how others have implemented this tool/approach/methodology/system.
Of course every organization has different needs, focus and desired outcomes and so each will be different - and are therefore good learning devices.
 

 
Uses of Balanced Scorecard in Universities
salem ahmed, Manager, Yemen, Member
I am very much interested in BSC and read a lot about it.
If I want to apply it to a university, shall I use it only to evaluate the performance? Or do I use it to enhance the performance?
Thanks for you help...
 

 
The BSC Framework at Universities
salem ahmed, Manager, Yemen, Member
The BSC framework proved to be a beneficial and flexible technique, being able to adjust to new realities. Conceptually, it's good, but how could we apply the BSC at universities, adjusting the measures?
