The Balanced Scorecard is a strategic planning and management system that is used extensively in business and industry, government and nonprofit organizations worldwide to align business activities to the vision and strategy of the organization, improve internal and external communications, and monitor organization performance against strategic goals. The Balanced Scorecard concept was selected by the editors of Harvard Business Review as one of the most influential management ideas of the past 75 years.
“David Norton has combined deep insight and entrepreneurial leadership to develop an innovation that has transformed strategic management in business, industry, government and the nonprofit sector,” said Mark Rice, dean of WPI’s School of Business. “WPI honors and celebrates his innovations and his achievements.”
