Developing a Balanced Score Card Session 1 Viki Massey, Quality Coordinator A Joint Venture of London Health Sciences Centre and St. Josephs Health Care London
When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meager and unsatisfactory kind. William Thompson (Lord Kelvin), 1824-1907
What is a Balanced Score Card? 1) A measurement system 2) A strategic management system 3) A communication tool
BSC as a Measurement System Translates mission, vision and strategy through objectives and measures Provides a framework to describe the key elements in the achievement of the strategy Measures four perspectives - Customer Relations - Financial - Internal Service Process - Learning, Innovation and Growth
BSC as a Measurement System Financial Customer Relations Learning, Innovation and Growth Internal Service Process Vision and Strategy
Financial Perspective What financial steps are necessary to ensure the execution of our strategy/goals? Are the programs/ departments goals, implementation, and execution contributing to the bottom line? Are we meeting operational and financial targets? Dimensions of Quality: – Efficiency
Internal Service Process Perspective What critical processes must we excel at to satisfy our customers/stakeholders? What must be done internally to meet patient/customer expectations? Dimension of Quality: – Effectiveness – Appropriateness – Safety
Customer Relations Perspective Who are our target customers? How do our patients/customers see us? How do patients/customers rate our performance? Dimension of Quality: – Accessibility – Acceptability – Continuity
Learning, Innovation and Growth Perspective How can we continue to improve? What capabilities and tools do our employees need to execute our strategy/goals? Dimension of Quality: – Competence – Participation
BSC as a Strategic Management System Translates strategy into: Objectives Measures Targets Initiatives
Translating with the BSC Desired state Differentiating activities What must be done well to implement strategies How strategic success is measured Mission Vision Strategy/Goals Objectives In each perspective Measures In each perspective

BSC as a Communication Tool Describes and translates strategy to employees through clear and objective performance measures Example Goal: LLSG will provide cost effective and efficient services Objectives: Reduce costs Increase productivity Measures: Supply costs Workload
Todays Exercise Form 4 groups- one for each perspective Within each group: 1. Appoint a scribe/presenter 2. Brainstorm objectives 3. Record all objectives 4. Present objectives to other groups 5. Record other objectives as suggested by the other groups
Brainstorming Exercise Purpose: to generate multiple ideas, in this case for developing BSC objectives
BSC Objectives 1. Describe the activities that we must perform well to successfully implement strategy/goals 2. Answer the questions associated with each perspective 3. Start with an action verb: increase, develop, improve, lower, achieve etc.
Brainstorming Exercise Rules: 1. No idea is a bad idea 2. Be creative 3. Take risks 4. No criticism allowed
Brainstorming Exercise Method: Round Table 1. Out loud; round robin, one by one, each person states an idea which the scribe then records OR In silence; write ideas down on sticky notes. Pass notes to scribe to review out loud and record 2. Continue around the table until all ideas are exhausted
Next Steps Review BSC perspective guides Review objectives generated by the brainstorming exercise Consolidate and clarify objectives Vote on top candidates Trim list to a maximum of 3 per BSC perspective
