Scorecard training workshops
Your strategy is just about complete. You have started to build your scorecards or maybe you have completed a set of scorecards, dashboards and reports. Unfortunately, the first rush of excitement has gone. The system has not quite given your users what they expected. It is time to call in the experts. We can help you refresh your scorecards and make your system fly.

The training participants will leave with a thorough understanding of how the application can help the business. They will:
- Understand how to build a meaningful scorecard
- Learn how to organise their scorecard data effectively
- Have a clearer view of Key Performance Indicators
- Understand the importance of prioritisation
- Build some live scorecards, dashboards and reports
- Practice some of the more advanced application features
- Pull together useful end user reports
Who Should Attend
This training course is aimed primarily at scorecard administrators who have been tasked with the development of a strategy or KPI management system. It is also useful for business users who are actively using the system.
The purpose of the training is to build real scorecards, dashboards and reports. The scorecard administrator should come prepared with data that can be used in the system. This could be the existing scorecards that need to be revised, a system that needs to be audited or a set of spreadsheets that need to be translated and input.
The training agenda will be set prior to the visit and can be as flexible or formal as required to get the job done.
“We all had our own ideas but the workshop, through a set of exercises and lively discussions, enabled us to narrow these down to the priorities that would add the most value to our business.” Bruce Bultitude, Managing Director, PowerJacks
“The balance between learning and practical exercises to help move our strategy forward was perfect. If you need someone to kick-start your strategic activities, Intrafocus is the company to go to.” Milos Jelic, CEO, Nelt
