Last week, over 80 not-for-profit and government leaders convened in Washington, D.C. to discuss how the Balanced Scorecard can be used to help address the massive challenges faced by social and public sector organizations.
Led by Harvard Business School professors Robert Kaplan and Allen Grossman, the conference included participants from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Fulton County Public Schools, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the University of Leeds, and the Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Boston.

(Performance management is a relatively new concept to the field of management. Performance management literature typically starts out with various examinations of the term "performance". The following information describes how the term "performance" in this library is used in this library.)
Supervisors have conducted performance appraisals for years. Employees have attended training sessions for years. Organization members have worked long, hard hours for centuries. Processes, such as planning, budgeting, sales and billings have been carried out for years in organizations. But all too often, these activities are done mostly for the sake of doing them, not for contributing directly to the preferred results of the organization.
Performance management reminds us that being busy is not the same as producing results. It reminds us that training, strong commitment and lots of hard work alone are not results. The major contribution of performance management is its focus on achieving results -- useful products and services for customers inside and outside the organization. Performance management redirects our efforts away from busyness toward effectiveness.
