A good strategy map should communicate everything a company is striving to achieve on a single page.

Think about it, if your company is made up of only five people or is an enterprise of 5,000 people first and foremost you want them to know exactly what the company is about and what it is trying to achieve.

What is more, your employees want to know that your company has ambition and plans and will be around for the long haul. They want to be sure that the leaders know what they are doing and are in control.

They want to work in a winning environment and want to know their jobs are secure. One of the most powerful tools you have in your armoury is a strategy map (that and consistently winning profitable business, the two are inextricably linked).

  2. 2. The Strategy Map • A Strategy Map is a diagram that describes how a company or organisation can create value by linking strategic objectives in a cause and effect relationship. • It is based on the four Balanced Scorecard Perspectives: Financial, Customer, Internal Processes and Learning & Growth. • The key element of the Strategy Map is that it is linked to the ‘scorecards’ that monitor the progress towards the Strategic Objectives. • The ‘scorecards’ will include: metrics, targets for the metrics and strategic initiatives to drive performance towards achieving the objectives.
  3. 3. The Balanced Scorecard • The Balanced Scorecard is a strategic planning and management method used to: • align business activities to a vision and strategy of an organisation • improve internal and external communications • monitor organisational performance against strategic goals. • The design of Balanced Scorecard concerns itself with: • the identification of a small number of financial and non-financial measures referred to as Perspectives • setting targets for the measures and then • measuring them on a regular basis to determine success or failure.
