Course description

Strategic Planning: Balanced Scorecard Associate (BSA) Certification

The Balanced Scorecard Professional Certification Pt. 1 course introduces participants to the Nine Steps to Success™ balanced scorecard development methodology. Participants learn how to build and implement a balanced scorecard for any commercial, government or nonprofit organization with a practical step-by-step approach. As Part 1 of the BSP Certification, this course is a practical, “hands-on” workshop that covers best practices, case studies, exercises, lessons-learned, real-life examples and expert facilitation practices. This course is the fundamental starting point for anyone interested in scorecard development, even for students that have advanced knowledge and experience implementing scorecards based on their own research or by working with other methodologies.

Currently, this certification is only available outside of the continental United States and is primarily offered as an onsite engagement.
