The Balanced Scorecard in Education

The top level goal in education is most often measured by achievement on standardized tests.  Unfortunately, by the time the test is administered, it is often too late to make a difference. During a project with Chicago Public Schools to help turn around the failing Medill School, we developed a Strategy Map for the project.  Strategy Maps are a graphical representation of the Balanced Scorecard approach for driving change.

The key to the Balanced Scorecard / Strategy Map is to layout the sequence of events leading to the ultimate “How do we measure success?” question.  In this situation it is:

  • A strong financial base
  • Allows us to hire the teachers and create the infrastructure
  • That supports the educational process and
  • Leads to student success.
