Linking People, Strategy and Performance. THE HR. SCORECARD. THE SUMMARY IN BRIEF. Most CEOs and senior line managers are skeptical of the role of. However, as a service organization, human resource competency becomes key factor in a public hospital that also needs to be improved. For achieving this aim, then this paper describes human resources performance measurement steps for the hospital particularly regional public. The HR Scorecard. The Six-Step Model for Implementing HR's Strategic Role: Ulrich et al. discuss a seven step model for formalising the strategic role of HR.
If financial measures were causing organizations to do the wrong things, what measures would prompt them to do the right things? Once competencies had been defined, Big W had the basis on which to appraise the performance of existing store managers. These were also the two areas where the balanced scorecard process was most helpful in refining and understanding our existing strategies. Why not split the company up into independent companies and let the market reallocate capital? What is the value added of a corporate office that concentrates on making division managers accountable for financial results that can be added up across divisions? A measurement orientation reinforces concerns about control and a short-term focus. The answer turned out to be obvious:
JMD Currently, Big W has over stores with 25, employees and is growing rapidly 28,5 plans to revamp more than half its stores and develop new stores.
Another store is planned for opening in as part of the Castle Towers redevelopment, which is awaiting approval. Standards Australia have also pioneered the move to internationally aligned Standards and related services and is the Australian representative on the two major international Standardizing bodies, the International Standards Organization ISO and the International Electro-technical Commission IEC.
It also coordinates the attendance of Australian experts at international meetings. Change management imperative Since Standards Australia was founded 75 years ago the role of management in Australia has undergone considerable change. Mike Conway, Director of Corporate Development and Strategy, recently headed up a change management team responsible for preparing management and staff to provide internal higher quality standards at lower production costs.
The investigation focused on: Integrated technology The ultimate success of the change strategy greatly depended on how the change was to be introduced and implemented rather than the merit of the strategy itself. This allowed management to set goals for the individual, team and the whole organization, build performance criteria, assess competencies, identify strengths and weaknesses and provide feedback.
Barriers and information gaps that stood between the individual business managers, the team and the organization were identified. This approach efficiently linked individual business outputs to competencies on an integrated HR platform that changed the way people thought about their role at Standards Australia. By reviewing the business plans, interviewing management and staff and creating an organisational directory of relevant position profiles that incorporated Key Result Areas, Competencies and Performance Criteria, the management team has been able to introduce and continuously monitor a process of superior performance.
Matching people and jobs One of the first steps in developing position profiles has been to identify the criteria or measures that define superior or effective performance on the job.
In addition ratings by management and staff have also been sought so as to identify effective performance. The hard criteria and ratings gathered have been invaluable in identifying good performance. The framework established has enabled Standards Australia to create future job profiles linked to the strategic plan and recruit to those profiles.
Selection is the process of matching people and jobs, either people outside the organisation recruiting and new hire selection or inside placement and promotion.
The better the fit between the requirements of a job and competencies of the jobholder, the higher performance and job satisfaction achieved. Outcomes The outcomes for Standards Australia from the project have been as follows: They are now able to provide leadership and a context for employees to determine improvement initiatives that align organizational effort to key outcomes.
They are now able to identify and take responsibility for their own performance issues whilst being linked to the key strategies of their own workgroup and team. They are now able to monitor employee progress against defined competencies 28,5 at regular intervals with a view to assist low performers and design career plans for high performers.
The appointment of external candidates is now based on more accurate position profiles and performance criteria. Comparing internal successors with incumbents on a best to least fit basis can be done effectively and audited. Workgroups and teams have now achieved ownership of and commitment to using key result areas linked to competencies and performance criteria that achieve significant performance improvement both to internal people and external clients.
Ongoing ownership The technology has played an important role in achieving the end result and continues to provide an integrated approach to the implementation of change in a way all stakeholders develop ownership in the performance process.
A cooperative partnership has been established that allows management to provide leadership or the need for change and the direction for that change on an ongoing basis.
This has been achieved in Standards Australia by creating and maintaining an organizational culture where significant authority and decision making is shared with employees.
The process of creating the balanced scorecard is a fairly involved process which requires a lot of understanding and commitment, and for some business unit leaders, a lot of facilitation help. The business unit also has to focus on those aspects of corporate objectives to which it can realistically contribute. Ask them! The Balanced Scorecard is balanced in another dimension — not just a balance of measures of essential areas of the business, but also a balance of goals versus accountability.
The balanced scorecard approach may require some substantial changes in culture The balanced within the business. The balanced scorecard requires understanding, commitment and scorecard support from the very top of the business down. Different organisations have quite different needs, market areas, people, products and services, and will end up with significantly different balanced scorecards than Siemens or Big W above if they are successful in implementing such a scorecard.
Business models are often made to appear easy to adopt, probably with the aim of selling them to a company. The balanced scorecard model described Here seems to be hard to implement. It seems to take a lot of work and effort and time to achieve a result that, and constantly evolving, will help the business grow. We can conclude that if we want to use a balanced scorecard or any other business model we have to be prepared for some difficult learning, substantial culture change, and a lot of hard work, especially for those who champion such a change.

Thus, people down the line become more empowered. Leadership Commitment — Pivotal for successful BSC implementation A close observation and reflection on the entire process reveals that at the centre of all this is the leadership commitment. Their commitment to realise the organizational vision motivates them to involve employees in the visualisation process VLP and enable employees to find alignment between the organizational vision and their personal vision.
Thereafter, strategies are developed, and communicated to employees in the form of operational objectives on the balanced scorecards.
While the employees participate in the scorecard designing process, they bring out processes that need improvement and other important parameters that need improvement for developing an enabling work environment. The entire process enhances communication, information sharing, team work, role clarity, learning endeavours, and so on. The following model puts it all together: Organizations can conduct visioning workshops wherein employees build their shared visions and can see the alignment between personal and organizational visions.
Further, they identify the organizational strategic objectives and their individual objectives as well. They select most appropriate initiatives and get committed to achieving the identified strategic objectives.
Regular scorecard reviews ensure continuous focus on achieving strategic objectives and ensuring all resource availability. The review team decides the next steps and resolves problems if any. Employee performance gets reviews and they receive incentives and rewards accordingly.
HPCL followed this model and initiated the process of organizational transformations with visionary leadership programs VLP. These workshops focus on developing the personal and organizational visions and bringing in alignment between the two. The following series of workshops translate the organizational vision and strategy into balanced scorecards and cascade the scorecards across the organization.
These operational objectives on the scorecards are linked with employee performance appraisal system. The commitment of top leadership team for ensuring strategy implementation leads them to adopt BSC tool and to ensure successful BSC implementation they work on building an engaging work environment for it is the engaged employee who actually executes the strategy.
