"Das Buch bietet eine exzellente Ergänzung zu den beiden Büchern von Kaplan und Norton. Es werden die Details und Prozesse erklärt, welche Projektmanager beachten sollten, wenn sie die Mess- und Managementsysteme für die Balanced Scorecard in ihre Organisation einführen." Aus dem Vorwort von Robert S. Kaplan Balanced Scorecard ist das effektivste und verbreitetste Managementsystem, um auf der Basis von Finanzkennzahlen strategische Entscheidungen zu treffen. Dieses bewährte Kennzahlen-System ermöglicht die Messung der Performance und die Steuerung des Unternehmens. Sehr praxisorientiert und topaktuell wird von Paul Niven diese ausgereifte Methode präsentiert. Der Autor zeigt Schritt für Schritt, wie Balanced Scorecard eingeführt und in das bestehende Managementsystem implementiert wird: Wie erfasse ich ideelle Werte, wie intellektuelles Kapital oder Kundenbeziehungen? Wie verbinde ich aktuelle Finanzzahlen mit zukünftigem Wachstumspotenzial? Und wie nutze ich Balanced Scorecard, um die Unternehmensorganisation neu auszurichten? Einen Schwerpunkt des Buches bildet das Updating, das heißt die kontinuierliche Aktualisierung und Verbesserung der Balanced Scorecard. Da sich Unternehmen und Märkte dynamisch entwickeln, ist diese niemals abgeschlossen. Ständig müssen die Kennzahlen überprüft, die Ziele neu definiert beziehungsweise die Strategie angepasst werden. Das Buch zeigt auch, wie diese Prozesse zur bestmöglichen Nutzung von Balanced Scorecard automatisiert werden können.
