A brief description of the organization you selected
I’m working on a Management question and need guidance to help me study.
Now that you have had an opportunity to analyze the balanced scorecard, consider how it would apply to an organization of your choice.
For your initial post to this discussion, select a health care organization that has readily available data for the four categories from the Kaplan and Norton’s 1996 model. Those categories are:
Financial performance measures.
Internal business processes.
Learning and growth.
You may wish to select your employer; however, please do not disclose proprietary data without prior written consent from your employer. You may wish to review Web sites of large, global organizations to research case study articles on best practices for suitable organizations.
Develop a PowerPoint presentation with 10–12 slides that describes how you would apply a balanced scorecard to your selected organization. In your PowerPoint presentation, include:
A brief description of the organization you selected.
Your balanced scorecard analysis of the organization, including how vision and strategy connect to the four balanced scorecard elements.
Four recommendations for the organization.
Include at least one APA-formatted in-text citation and accompanying, congruent APA-formatted reference.
Attach your PowerPoint presentation in your initial post to this discussion.
Note: You will use the PowerPoint presentation created for this discussion as part of the Unit 8 assignment. Additionally, you will use the balanced scorecard you develop for this discussion in the assignments in Units 8 and 9. Review the instructions and scoring guides for those assignments for more information about what your balanced scorecard should contain.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
