The Balanced Scorecard is a performance management approach that focuses on various overall performance indicators, often including customer perspective, internal business processes, learning and growth, and financials, to monitor progress toward the organization’s strategic goals. Each major unit throughout the organization often establishes its own scorecard which, in turn, is integrated with the scorecards of other units to achieve the scorecard of the overall organization.
