...Strategic Plan, Part III: Balanced Scorecard BUS 475 Alicia Joseph May 7, 2012 James Sternieri – Instructor Strategic Plan, Part III: Balanced Scorecard 2 One may ask, “What is a Balanced Scorecard?” “A Balanced Scorecard is a tool that is used in management to completely monitor the performance and access whether smaller goals are consistent with larger and long-term goals, based on the vision and strategies being used” (Kaplan & Norton, 2005). This type of tool can be beneficial for the operation of All Eyes on Me as a startup business. Having a balanced scorecard will allow the following to be identified: the mission statement, the vision statement, the objectives, the values of the company, and mainly the SWOT analysis. The balanced scorecard is often times considered an excellent perspective as it relates to learning the financial perspective, internal perspectives and the consumer. In this paper, I will attempt to discuss the objectives, target audience and performance measures. Also, in this paper, I will discuss the mission, SWOT analysis and vision of All Eyes on Me. Financial Perspectives “While defining the financial perspective, the main concern is the company image as perceived by their stakeholders at a time when they are already successful” (Kaplan & Norton, 2005).

Strategic Plan

...STRATEGIC PLANNING  One approach to strategic planning is to match an organization's goods and services with its markets, generally in the long term. The long term is viewed as two or more years. To minimize threats from competitive inroads and obsolescence, every business unit must have a strategic plan and constantly monitor its markets and competitors. Tomorrow's winning products must be researched, tested, developed and introduced before today's winners become obsolete. To manage its future every company needs a business strategy and a marketing strategy. The business strategy guides the corporate mission, financial and operational planning, its search for new products, technologies, and market targets. The marketing strategy takes the business strategy as given, then focuses on matching products to markets. Market planning involves the shorter run, annual and day-to-day, activities of developing and executing the marketing mix elements of the company's offerings. As execution is carried out, constant feedback must be assured to provide input for modifications to the marketing plan in the face of changing conditions. Every organization has a marketing strategy. It can be expressed either as written plans or as a collection of unwritten or even unstated rules. In either case, it should include a statement or understanding about the company's mission, customers, and offerings whether formalized or informal.  To have no strategy is to be directionless or what might......
