The balanced scorecard approach to measurement that was developed by Kaplan and Norton, effectively blends traditional financial measures such as costs and budgets with non-financial measures such as customer satisfaction, quality, delivery, employee satisfaction, employee competency, productivity, technology deployment, and innovation.

Using the balanced scorecard approach to measurement, the Kaslen Group can help you implement a measurement dashboard as one of your management tools.

Just like the dashboard of a car or the cockpit of an airplane, a measurement dashboard gives you key information at a glance, so you can successfully guide your organization or project.
