Cascading the Balanced Scorecard from Corporate Level to Business Levels to Individual Level

What I have seen working is linking the organization's score card to the business unit's/divisional/departmental score cards and finally individual score cards.
In some organizations this idea fails when it is left to HR alone. The BSC is then easily perceived as a staff performance appraisal tool only.
BSC is basically a tool to help you track the implementation of your strategy but you can only do this effectively through individuals. Hence the need to cascade the BSC from corporate level to individual level.

Line Management Responsibility
