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.
