Scorecards will help you to determine how well your team is doing with each of your five strategic objectives.

Key Points:

  • Find a way to measure what really matters in each of your five boxes. This will help you to see how effectively you are working toward your vision.
  • This is where strategy and culture meet. It is one thing to have a strategy, but make sure that strategy becomes part of your culture.
  • Think up practical ways to measure progress in each of your strategic objective boxes. For example, if one of you boxes was personal mentoring development, then measure it by seeing how many mentoring conversations that person has had in the past week or month.
  • You need to have these scorecards for success. Without scorecards you won’t be able to actually institute your strategy into your culture because you have no way of measuring whether or not the team is succeeding in all of its goals. Scorecards help you to keep your team accountable.
