What the Balanced Scorecard DOES Address and What NOT

According to my experience, the balanced scorecard effectively deals with the 'hard side' of the organization, for example the financial performance (such as the turn over), the level of training, the quality and quantity of products.
However if fails to address the 'soft side' of an organization, such as causes of under performance, motivation of employees and organization indigenous factors e.g. internal politics.

Extra Perspectives Can be Added

In my experience using the BSC during the last 5 years, it is a very effective tool to measure, report and "align" business perspectives and improvement initiatives. Extra perspectives (for example the soft sides of organizations) can be easily added to the traditional ones and you can also include the soft side of business in any kind of Strategy Map.
