Why do organizations fail to get results from Strategy Execution Initiatives especially, Balanced Scorecard programs?
No executive leadership and ownership to lead the strategy execution initiative. It is done by only the middle management and it takes a longer time for development
Scorecard not linked to strategy (No strategy map and just KPIs in four perspectives)
Scorecard not communicated to employees
Scorecard not linked to management processes. It is not linked to 6 stages closed-loop management system and office of strategy management
