Organizational Alignment using Strategy Maps and Balanced Scorecard (BSC) – a Presentation

Organizational performance alignment has been given increased emphasis in the latest versions (V1.3) of the CMMI® model. The significantly upgraded process area renamed as Organizational Performance Management (OPA) requires process performance and improvement goals be derived from overall organizational business goals.

The People CMM® has always insisted on the linkage between business goals and units goals, workgroup goals, individual goals, and process performance goals.

The Balanced Scorecard (BSC) framework (with Strategy Maps) has been in use for many, many years, and many organizations have reported considerable improvement in their performances with the use of BSC.

CMMI® and People CMM® implementations can be significantly strengthened with the use of BSC.

The concept of BSC has been explained in the slide presentation linked / pasted below.
