Designing a Balanced Scorecard for a pharmaceutical company Chadwick, Inc.: The Balanced Scorecard (Abridged)14
Company Background
Chadwick, Inc., was a diversified producer of personal consumer products and pharmaceuticals. The Norwalk Division of Chadwick developed, manufactured, and sold ethical drugs for human and animal use. It was one of five or six sizable companies competing in these markets and, while it did not dominate the industry, the company was considered well managed and was respected for the high quality of its products. Norwalk did not compete by supplying a full range of products. It specialized in several niches and attempted to leverage its product line by continually searching for new applications for existing compounds.
Norwalk sold its products through several key distributors who supplied local markets, such as retail stores, hospitals and health service organizations, and veterinary practices. Norwalk depended on its excellent relations with the distributors who served to promote Norwalk’s products to end users and also received feedback from the end users about new products desired by their customers.
Chadwick knew that its long-term success depended on how much money distributors could make by promoting and selling Norwalk’s products. If the profit from selling Norwalk products was high, then these products were promoted heavily by the distributors and Norwalk received extensive communication back about future customer needs. Norwalk had historically provided many highly profitable products to the marketplace, but recent inroads by generic manufacturers had been eroding distributors’ sales and profit margins. Norwalk had been successful in the past because of its track record of generating a steady stream of attractive, popular products. During the second half of the 1980s, however, the approval process for new products had lengthened…...

...information technology, operational control and performance measurement. The concepts of Activity Based Costing (ABC), strategic control systems, flexible production system etc. are key words for modern cost management. 1.3 FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING AND COST ACCOUNTING In financial accounts, the monetary transactions of the business are recorded, classified and analysed in an orderly manner, so as to prepare periodic results in the form of profit and loss account or income statement and balance sheet, indicating the financial position of the business at the end of that period. The financial accounting is guided by various rules and regulations, some of which are mandatory. The system cannot normally deviate from the accepted accounting practices. The object of financial accounting is to provide information mainly to outsiders such as shareholders, investors, government authorities, financial institutions, etc. The analysis and interpretation of financial data contained in the income statement and the balance sheet enable persons interested in the business to make meaningful judgement about the profitability, liquidity and solvency of the enterprise. Besides, income-tax, central excise, banks and insurance companies rely on the data contained in the financial statements.Cost accounting, on the other hand, deals with the ascertainment of the cost of product or service. It is a tool of management that provides detailed records and reports on the costs and expenses associated......

...scoiecard tracks the key elements of a company's strategyfiom continuous improvement and partnerships to tearnwork and global scale. The Balanced Scorecard Measures That Drive Performance by Robert S. Kaplan and David P. Norton what you measure is what you get. Senior executives understand that their organization's, measurement system strongly affects the behavior of managers and employees. Executives also understand that traditional financial accounting measures like return-on-investment and earnings-per-share can give misleading signals for continuous improvement and innovation-activities today's competitive envifinancial results will follow." But managers should not have to choose between financial and operational measures. In observing and working with many companies, we have found that senior executives do not rely on one set of measures to the exclusion of the other. They realize that no single measure can provide a clear perforniance target or focus attention on the critical areas of the business. Managers want a balanced presentation of both financial and operational measures. During a year-long research project with 12 com-/ panies at the leading edge of performance measurement, we devised a "balanced scorecard"-a set of measures that gives top managers a fast but comprehensive view of the business. The balanced scorecard includes financial measures that tell the results of actions already taken. And it complements the financial measures with operational......

...The Balanced Scorecard: Historical Development and Context, As Developed by Robert Kaplan & David Norton Karl R. Knapp Anderson University – Anderson IN ABSTRACT This paper discusses the general theory of the Balanced Scorecard and traces its historical origins. The Balanced Scorecard is based on three main areas: Measurement, Human Relations, and Customer Value Disciplines. The basis in measurement draws on Management by Objectives. The human relations school of management and open-book management theories are influential. The customer value discipline links the scorecard to the strategy of the firm. The Balanced Scorecard The Balanced Scorecard is a theory and management approach first proposed in the Harvard Business Review by Robert S. Kaplan & David P. Norton (1995). A subsequent book, The Balanced Scorecard, was published following this article (1996). The most recent refinement of this theory and management approach appears in Kaplan & Norton’s book, The Strategy-Focused Organization (2001). This paper attempts to present a high-level overview of this management theory, along with a description of its historical foundation and development. As defined by Kaplan and Norton (1996), “The Balanced Scorecard translates an organization’s mission and strategy into a comprehensive set of performance measures that provides the framework for a strategic measurement and management system”. This strategic management system measures organizational performance......

Case Study- the Balance Scorecard

...The Balanced Scorecard - Solution at Peel Memorial Hospital Riiva Williams Kaplan University October 7th, 2013 Hospitals and regional health authorities across Canada are under siege. From mergers to forced closures to funding restraints, the healthcare industry is facing tremendous challenges. To make matters more complicated, add mediating cultural differences and the integration of non-acute and community-based services. At the same time, healthcare entities attempt to remain focused on delivering high-quality patient care and aligning the key stakeholders to the newly created vision. In the midst of these challenges, management must ensure that it brings as much alignment, direction and purpose as possible into the organization. A clearly articulated vision statement, measurable corporate goals and objectives, together with a strategic plan all help to bring more certainty to staff, patients and volunteers. The "deliverable" is the ability of staff and teams to align accountabilities, activities and resources in support of the vision and goals of the organization. For Peel Memorial Hospital (PMH) in Brampton Ontario, 1995 was a watershed year. It was evident that our corporate goals and objectives had run their course. We lacked measurable targets. We had a tired Mission Statement that tried to be all things to all people. Internal surveys revealed that employees weren't clear on what our objectives were, what strategic direction we were taking and how certain......

Balance Scorecard

...Origin of Balance Score Card Balanced Scorecard has been launched twenty years ago as a first set of principles for balanced strategic Objectives and Measures/KPIs setting and measurement. The “parents” of Balanced Scorecard are Dr. Robert S. Kaplan, Baker Foundation Professor at Harvard Business School and Dr. David P. Norton, the founder of the consulting team that contributed over the past two decades to the development of Balanced Scorecard into today’s integrated and aligned management system. That company is now called ‘The Palladium Group’ (www.thepalladiumgroup.com) and is based in Massachusetts, near the Harvard Business School. Since their first article about Balanced Scorecard, published in 1992 in the Harvard Business Review, Drs. Kaplan and Norton have published five books, which have marked the evolution of the BSC framework and of its implementation methodology, starting with ‘The Balanced Scorecard’, in 1996 and ending with ‘The Execution Premium’, in 2008 (now also translated in Romanian, soon to be published). Over the years many consulting or educational organizations have tried to add to the Balanced Scorecard initial concepts, in some cases attempting to build “a better mouse trap”, but few succeeded to bring any significant theoretical or practical value to the BSC framework and implementation methodology, developed continuously by Drs. Kaplan and Norton and by their team at Palladium and based on thousands of implementation projects in most industries,...

A Balanced Scorecard approach generally has four perspectives: 1. Financial perspective Timely and accurate financial data is always needed by an organization. This perspective is concerned with the shareholders view of performance. Shareholders are concerned with many aspects of financial performance, such as market share, revenue growth, profit ratio, and return on investment. 2. Internal business processes perspective This perspective refers to internal business processes. Balanced scorecard measures help managers to know how well their business is running.
