Discussion: Developing a Balanced Scorecard

QUESTION

NURS 6241: STRATEGIC PLANNING IN HEALTH CARE ORGANIZATIONS – Discussion 8 (Grading Rubic and Media Attached)

Discussion: Developing a Balanced Scorecard

How does a group gauge whether the strategic changes they implement are creating sound business results?

The effective use of a balanced scorecard can facilitate alignment between strategic initiatives and day-to-day operations. The balanced scorecard may serve as a valuable tool for monitoring progress and assessing the outcomes of a strategic plan and provide a practical means of communication.

In this Discussion, you examine the use of a balanced scorecard to measure performance related to finances, customer/client satisfaction, internal processes, and learning and growth.

To prepare:

Review the information in the Learning Resources, including this week’s media presentation, focusing on the development of performance metrics for a strategic plan. See Figure 8-6: Design your Balanced Scorecard in the Sare and Ogilvie course text.

With your Course Project in mind, think about how you would develop a balanced scorecard to measure performance, including the processes you would use to gather appropriate data.

Consider how the use of a balanced scorecard reflects the importance of being able to evaluate progress, assess the impact of planned change on performance, and determine if the costs are justified in terms of the outcomes.

Post an explanation of your plan for creating a balanced scorecard as part of your Course Project, including the processes you would use to gather data to measure performance. Explain how the use of this balanced scorecard would enable you to evaluate progress, assess the impact of your proposed change, and determine if the costs are justified in terms of the outcomes.

Read a selection of your colleagues’ responses. (I will send the peer responses on the handshake private message)

Respond to at least two of your colleagues on two different days by offering suggestions for further developing their balanced scorecards. Ask questions to peer responses at the end of every response. Cite your responses.
