In this example the Warehouse/Service Centers executive officers would like to a view of the organization that includes Inventory Management and Customer Service. Currently they want a scorecard view that displays relative importance (weighting) between the companys two primary areas and assign commentary. This scorecard could be used later if an organizational strategy diagram needs to be created. The individual tactical scorecards have already been built in chapter 3, now you will need to create the overall scorecard to view how one area of the company affects another. One scorecard could be created which contains all the inputs and results, but typically scorecards are built by separate people/departments and they will need to be linked together. The two areas currently defined for the organization are Inventory Management and Customer Service. For the entire year of 1998 the primary function of the Warehouse/Service Center was to supply and monitor inventory and not to concentrate highly on Customer Service. As the year ended the company noticed that the Service Centers manager was very successful at monitoring inventory and that inventory management in one of the primary warehouses needs assistance. So, management decided that the inventory will eventually be phased out of the center and the Service Centers manager will be relocated to the primary warehouse to increase performance levels. The new manager for the Service Center is customer service oriented and will introduce performance plans to bring all the tech reps up to planned KPI performance. Due to the organizational change, in January and February 1999 you will need to edit the weighting of Inventory Management and Customer Service to reflect this change. Customer Service will be 92% and Inventory Management will be 8% of the Overall Performance score. When evaluating the Warehouse/Customer Service for 1998 Inventory Management is twice as important as Customer Service. To summarize 1998, the following business functions and weights will be assigned:

You will build this scorecard similar to the two created in chapter 3, except the inputs have already been defined from the separate tactical scorecards.

Remember the inputs have already been added to each tactical scorecard, you will need to start this scorecard by adding one result, Overall Performance. 4. Select the Result button from the tool bar. 5. Rename the result Overall Performance. 6. Select OK to continue. Your scorecard should look similar to the one below:

Changing Stretch Targets and Weights The scorecard is accurate through the year 1998, but since the organization went through a management change starting in January 1999 and decided to eventually phase out inventory. You will need to reflect the organization change by modifying the weights of Inventory Management result to 8% and Customer Service to 92%. Assigning commentary indicating the change also needs to be added to note and document the changes.
