There are two main questions the company management should answer before using BSC.  The first one is “whether or not the company needs balanced scorecard”, and the second is “weather on not the company is ready to use BSC”.  Both questions are very important since if the company doesn’t need balanced scorecard and still uses it without proper knowledge, this may hurt company well being.  As known, balanced scorecard requires investments and human resources.

So, how can one determine if the company needs implementation of balanced scorecard?  There are four main points:

  • The company management is not involved in strategic planning
