BSC is a suitable measure for counting a banking organization’s progress

A banking organization’s operations ask for immense care and attention to be paid towards their conduction as even a slight deviation can trigger a chain of ‘negative reactions’. Thus, everything right from the taskforce to the most internal processes should be pulled together. This is possible with the balanced scorecard (BSC) that was developed by Norton and Kaplan in 1990s for helping in evaluation of both the ‘financial’ and ‘non-financial’ assessment of the company.

One is just required to bring together the factors that are found to be apt in communicating the situation to users in the form of banking metrics. These parameters will in turn be decided after looking at the underlying factors that affect the success of bank.

By learning the appropriate usage of information divulged by this scorecard, one can effectively get to the root cause of problems that surface from time to time. This trait has pushed several managers, who were on a search for ‘performance management and measurement strategy’ to opt for this solution for betterment of their processes. The metrics however, should be selected after judging their competency in reflecting the situation.
