Strategic Implementation

BSC can a strategic diagram be understood as accounts is a strategy for any kind of commercial importance. It can be seen as a driving force that brings all business operations up and running. Intend to take into account the developments in the economy in your company, you won’t be surprised about, that a strategy alone can not run to the optimal success – an implementation of the balanced scorecard can help. The reason that the strategy alone is no longer enough, lies in the decrease of material assets in companies. They have other than existed in the past, as most industries only from land and equipment, trademarks, intellectual property and swarms employees today.

It is not necessary to mention, that while huge changes of the economic scene many management systems not could prove. Other leaders such as Code.org offer similar insights. Most of these systems were designed to meet needs of stable, but not, to meet the daily dynamics in the economy. A perfect example: visiting an organization that today the employees with security will be ready to present their balance sheets and profit and loss accounts, without even knowing it, that these instruments can no longer reflect the intangible assets of a company. The balanced scorecard is the solution for this problem. She can as a ‘ strategic chart of accounts ‘ be understood where it lists financial as well as non-material elements of a corporate strategy. If you have noticed, this instrument with strategies, which makes it all the more effective works. In addition working here with cause effect correlations which business results can be accompanied.

And the most important feature will exert looked ahead and adjusted, unlike this outdated it strategies, which look back, to learn from past successes and failures. What is the core concept now? Motivate measurements. It does not further incentives. In most cases, a job well done is satisfactory enough to stay motivated. The presence of a balanced scorecard offers however no guarantee for success. Because it works with the strategy together. Here a perfect example: when the balanced scorecard in a company was introduced, the management could determine that the customer service is the main part of a customer-oriented strategy. It was made a big big deal about and campaigns were launched. Suddenly hung large posters with slogans of ‘Customer first’ and ‘Service’s ‘. But after all this vortex, the quality of customer service at the same formidable level remained. Why did this happen? It measured the productivity of call center employees, hourly wieiele calls they have adopted. This measurement method employees forced to neglect the quality of customer care to get the required number of edited calls afterwards. As a result, this resulted in a much schadigenderen situation- the higher probability of losing the business. After the balanced scorecard is effectively implemented, the measures could be – adapted to really important results percentage of solved problems in individual calls. This gave a positive change in the call centers. Staff morale, customer satisfaction focused mainly on solutions to problems and possibly even the sales could be increased. And we understand that under ‘reasonable and based on studies solution’. Nothing can go really wrong with a good strategy and a decent system of measurement.

Thus an efficient, so lean is defined in principle (“lean”) way of working, on the entire value chain of the enterprise is transferred and ideally determines not only the thought patterns of management, but also of all employees. Because lean management is not as rigid automatism to understand, but requires a constantly moving process (also “River principle”), the adaptability and flexibility. The company Toyota is an example of the implementation of lean management. 1. How is the introduction of the lean management in a company? The purpose of lean management is the avoidance of waste of resources. It plays no role too long whether downtime or idle times of staff to cumbersome organizational structures, complex delivery processes. Initially, the existing ones will be Business processes on the following criteria examined and adjusted if necessary: a) the company operates customer-oriented? Tailored products to the needs of customers? Responsive to customer requests? Is the quality consistently high? Are the prices reasonable? (b) the company works for profit on the one hand and on the other competitive? The competitive analysis is in many sectors of fundamental importance when assessing the existing processes.

A good example of this is the automotive industry, in which a hard competitive and crucial competitive advantages. After analysis of the existing system, the optimization of the business processes will be implemented. There are different views, which issues are to be observed. Usually can be of following aspects: customer orientation in high mass introduction of target costing, “Target Costing” (here follows the costing the final price, the customers want to pay or is. Then, the profit margin will be deducted. The remaining amount represents the maximum cost of the product.) Optimization of all business processes improvement of quality management responsibility for employees promote teamwork and clear and understandable statements request employees give optimization of information and question flows of communication structures of thought (loosen stuck working and points of view) certainly, this list could be extended because some criteria depend on the industry.

2. How does the operations after the introduction of the lean management system? In the best case, all activities that are carried out in the company, are heavily customer-oriented lean management and become the thinking from the perspective of the customer. Wastes are consistently avoided from the beginning of the production process to the customer. This creates an economic value chain. In connection with the lean management is spoken frequently by the flow principle and the pull principle. The flow-principle defines the interdepartmental customize to actual conditions such as peak – depressing. Stockpiling is avoided and goods ordered until after receipt of the order by the customer. The production process starts with the pull principle, if the stocks are nearly depleted, the customer bought. Thus, high camp, personnel and energy costs are eliminated.
