Understanding the Balanced Scorecard
To start the day, participants will learn what the balanced scorecard is and where it originated from. Participants will also explore what economic changes caused the balanced scorecard to evolve.
The Ingredients for Success
Next, participants will evaluate if the balanced scorecard is a good tool for their organization. Participants will also brainstorm solutions to the top ten issues that cause the balanced scorecard to fail.
Overview of the Balanced Scorecard Process
This session will begin with a flowchart outlining each step of the balanced scorecard process. Participants will also review a sample strategy map, tactical action plan, and scorecard.
Creating a Project Vision Statement
In this session, participants will learn how to craft a vision statement for the balanced scorecard project.
Understanding Organizational Mission, Vision, and Values
This session will look at what a mission statement, vision statement, and value identification list looks like, and how they each fit into the balanced scorecard process. To apply learning points, participants will evaluate what some well-known companies have for these statements.
Plans and Processes to Build
Next, participants will receive checklists for creating training plans, project plans, communication plans, and core processes.
Building Balanced Scorecard Teams
To wrap up the day, participants will learn how to build the three most common types of balanced scorecard teams: an executive team, a steering team, and strategic theme teams.
In Person Training
The traditional classroom style of training remains our Most Popular and Most Requested format. On-site training provides participants with an in-person facilitator who will work directly with the team, whether for a single training session or a training series. The Mainstream team will craft and tailor your experience to ensure that your training session is specific, relevant and unique to your audience while meeting your learning objectives. Why settle for ‘pre-formatted, pre-scripted, one-size fits all’ training programs, when our team is able to customize a program that is just right for you? We know that every team has unique learning needs, situations and that they come from a variety of industries, each having unique customer needs and demands. Our programs can be scaled to accommodate time restraints, unique learning needs and even industry or company nuances and barriers.
Don’t settle for a program that gives you almost what you need; our team wants to give you Exactly what you need.
Delivering traditional onsite training results …virtually!
We’ve officially changed the rules and redefined what is possible in the world of soft skills learning. Our unique technology, accompanied by honed delivery methodology, have successfully replicated the traditional classroom-style training environment, allowing it to exist online.
Most online training solutions limit participants’ responses to keystrokes or to single person conversations because -with inferior technology- group discussions become distorted and confusing to follow. Our Virtual Room has eliminated those barriers and encourages learning through meaningful instructor feedback, skills modelling and engaging group discussion, without visual or audio distortion
The Virtual Room is for any organization seeking a flexible substitute to traditional onsite training; whether to lower costs, eliminate unnecessary travel or to simply ease the burden of demanding work schedules.
Lunch & Learn
A Lunch and Learn session is an onsite or virtual learning program with a facilitator-led session sharing valuable information and skills on an area of identified learning interest. It’s a great break away from a traditional training program, allowing your team the opportunity to learn while enjoying their lunch. Due to the limited time, the program focuses on specific learning concepts and skills. It is an interactive session that quickly targets and reveals learning objectives that are predetermined by the training organizer. Lunch & Learn sessions are also great as a training series, providing progressive learning programs for developing skills in a ‘bite-sized’ format.
