Unit of Measurement of Balanced Scorecard in Public Sector

The Balanced Scorecard has been proven a success in corporate companies because the unit of measure is based on financial success. However, is it more difficult to identify the unit of measure in the public sector, mainly because the unit of measurement is not always financial, depending on the various levels of government. This is my opinion based on the experience from the public sector in developing countries.

BSC in Public Sector: Social and State Welfare Aspects
