Question

Question;Module 3 - CaseBSC IMPLEMENTATION & THE INTERNAL BUSINESS PROCESS PERSPECTIVEAssignment OverviewAny large-scale change endeavor requires a great deal of effort on the part of a given organization to implement. Implementing a corporate-wide BSC-based performance management system is no different. In implementing such a system, organizational leaders face the challenge of overcoming organizational inertia rooted in resistance to change. This is no easy challenge, and is one of the major reasons why the majority of BSC initiatives (or large-scale change initiatives in general) fail.In this module, therefore, instead of looking at the BSC's value as a means of integrating strategy with operations or as a useful performance-management tool, we will put on our "organizational dynamics consultant hat" and consider what it takes to implement a large-scale organizational change endeavor.Case AssignmentAfter completing the readings presented, write a 3- to 4-page essay on the following topic:In your own words, describe the efforts put forth by BAE in implementing the BSC approach in its organization?from an implementation perspective. What efforts did management make to assure employees would be receptive to, and accept, the BSC initiative? Describe to what extent you believe their efforts paid off.The case study for BAE can be found in Chapter 7 of:Murby, L., & Gould, S. (2005). Effective Performance Management with the Balanced Scorecard: Technical Report. Chartered Institute of Management Accountants. Retrieved fromhttp://www.cimaglobal.com/Documents/ImportedDocuments/Tech_rept_Effective_Performance_Mgt_with_Balanced_Scd_July_2005.pdfAssignment ExpectationsYour assignment should include the following:Introduction:In this part of your essay introduce your topic and provide a brief overview of the key points you plan to make in your paper.Analysis:In this section present the actual comparison and contrast between BAA?s approach to the Balanced Scorecard and more traditional approaches.Conclusion:Wrap up your argument with a clear and cogent synopsis of your findings. Do your best to convince your reader (aka your professor) that your position is valid.Additional Instructions:Your essay should be 3?4 pages in length (not counting your title page or references). You must include a title page and a list references. APA formatting is preferred. Do not paste in sections of text into your essay. All of your work must be written in your own words. It?s OK to use a short quote now and again, but quotations must be in quotation marks and properly cited. In-text citations should be used anytime you are borrowing somebody else?s ideas or information. That is to say, if you are borrowing a thought from a publication from J. Bravo?s article written in 2010, that section of text must be followed with (Bravo, 2010). Quotations, data, and general ideas (put into your own words) should all be cited.Module 4 - CaseSTRATEGY MAPPING & THE LEARNING AND GROWTH PERSPECTIVECase AssignmentExplain the process of strategy mapping and how it relates to performance management and establishing value propositions. You may discuss this theoretically or use the Glacier Inn case study presented in the Armitage and Scholey (2006) document in your readings to serve as an example for integrating these ideas. Alternatively, you can use the Hazard Action Zone case study presented in Murby & Gold document (see background readings) if you?d prefer.Armitage, H., Scholey, C., (2006). Using strategy maps to drive performance. Society of Management Accountants of Canada. Retrieved fromhttp://www.cimaglobal.com/Documents/ImportedDocuments/Tech_MAG_Strategy_Mapping_March07.pdfAssignment ExpectationsYour essay should be 4?5 pages long and include the following:Introduction:In this part of your essay introduce your topic and provide a brief overview of the key points you plan to make in your paper.Analysis:In this section present the actual comparison and contrast between BAA?s approach to the Balanced Scorecard and more traditional approaches.Conclusion:Wrap up your argument with a clear and cogent synopsis of your findings.

The benefit of the approach is that it measures an organization's performance from multiple perspectives. You have had an opportunity to consider organizational performance from several different perspectives and tie performance to strategy. You have also had an opportunity to consider organizational dynamics in relation to the implementation of a large-scale project like adoption of the Balanced Scorecard approach.In this module you will have an opportunity to take what you have learned and to apply it as an organizational consultant.For this Case Assignment you will play the role of a consultant presenting a case to a medium-to-large technology firm. A representative from the company Sonic Technologies has contacted you and asked you to meet with a group of company executives to discuss how the BCS approach works in technology organizations.Of course, it is well known that consultants are not all-knowing and that it is not uncommon for them to do a considerable amount of research before presenting a case to a client. Fortunately, you come across the following document while preparing for the assignment:Rohm, H., Malinoski, M., Strategy based balanced scorecards for technology. Balanced Scorecard Institute. Retrieved from:http://www.balancedscorecard.org/Portals/0/PDF/Technology Company Balanced Scorecard Systems_06222010_Final.pdfCase AssignmentYour task is to prepare an overview document that you will provide to the individuals who participate in your meeting. The document should not exceed 5 pages but should summarize the key points of the Balanced Scorecard process based on what you have learned this session and you need to apply what you have learned to technology organizations.Assignment ExpectationsYour essay should be 4?5 pages long and include the following:Introduction:In this part of your essay introduce your topic and provide a brief overview of the key points you plan to make in your paper.Analysis:In this section present the actual comparison and contrast between BAA?s approach to the Balanced Scorecard and more traditional approaches.Conclusion:Wrap up your argument with a clear and cogent synopsis of your findings.
