“Less than 10% of strategies effectively formulated are effectively executed. Most organizations don’t know how to execute strategy.” -- Fortune Magazine An organization’s ability to describe, manage and execute Strategy is achievable through Balanced Scorecards (BSC), a concept developed by Drs. Kaplan and Norton of the Harvard School of Business. When successfully implemented, BSC can result in a Strategy Focused Organization (SFO). The first step in the implementation of BSC is the development of a Strategy Map. This Work Instruction (WI) provides steps and tools in the development of a Strategy Map. Ideally, a Strategy Map should be cascaded from corporate to its business units, divisions, locations, shared services groups and finally each employee through personal scorecards. However, it can also be implemented without the use of the Corporate Strategy Map. The tools provided in this WI allow for both scenarios. 2.0 RESPONSIBILITIES 2.1 TASK RESPONSIBILITIES   

It is the responsibility of all participants of a Strategy Mapping exercise to read and understand the provisions of this WI. It is the responsibility of the leaders of a team embarking in the implementation of BSC to communicate the purpose and importance of the process to their team members prior to commencing with the process. It is the responsibility of the ABM Learning and Quality (ABMLQ) team to ensure that the contents of this WI are current and accessible

2.2 APPROVAL / ESCALATION RESPONSIBILITIES The Senior Vice President of ABM Learning and Quality (ABMLQ) is the point of escalation for matters contested or inquired upon in this WI. 3.0 PROCEDURE (SOP OR WI STEPS) 3.1 WHAT IS STRATEGY? An organization’s strategy describes how it intends to create VALUE for its shareholders, customers and employees. Managing strategy is managing change. Therefore, to execute strategy is to execute change at all levels of an organization. 3.2 WHY IS STRATEGY IMPORTANT? Many factors make it difficult to implement strategy today. The pace of change continues to accelerate, technology changes frequently and the workforce is more diverse and mobile than ever before. But the underlying reason it is difficult to implement strategy today is because business and business strategy are fundamentally different today than they were even fifteen years ago. The industrial age has been replaced by the knowledge age, with transformational effects on the economy and the workplace. The differences that have come from the knowledge age, make Strategy more important but more difficult to execute. Through Balanced Scorecards, organizations can overcome the hurdles common to most and more recently, exemplified by a select few. Balanced Scorecards allow an organization to do the following:  Describe strategy  Manage strategy  Execute strategy The first step in the implementation of BSC is the development of a Strategy Map. 3.3 STRATEGY MAP A Strategy Map is comprised of:  Strategic Theme  Mission Statement  Vision Statement  Strategic Objectives in each Perspective A Strategy Map has Four Balanced Perspectives:  Financial or Stakeholder (private or public)  Customer  Internal Process  Organizational Learning and Growth

3.4 STEPS TO DEVELOPING A STRATEGY MAP A Strategy Mapping session is typically an intensive face-to-face exercise facilitated by a Moderator. In most cases, the leaders or managerial staff of the team is in attendance. However, in other cases, representation from a cross-section of the team can also be advantageous; it can give the team a varied outcome.
