Ask Balanced Scorecard

Our experts answer some questions about the balanced scorecard. Many theories of the Motivierens are listed for today, it would seem that even such a situation should arise, the motivated staff and the very competent on the issue of the Motivierens Manager of in all organizations in the world to 100% would work. However, this problem for the majority of the companies is still very topical. All (or almost all) managers want that their subordinates to the specified deadlines fulfilled the work accurately, quality, initiative, and would be loyal to the Organization and its leadership. All (or almost all) employees wishing that they had clearly written interesting tasks, reasonable deadlines for their execution, worthy reward for the work and sound relationship on the part of colleagues. Why? What is necessary for the formation of effective system of Motivierens? Everything that happens in the Organization, is that the people who work in this organization, make something.

Take We, that the business is money. The people get the money of the society. This means that the business people. We assume that the business is a plan. People meet the plan. This means that the business people. It is possible the similar logical chains and build for other business realities: basically the business people prove to be the ordinary employees and managers.

To develop the system of the Motivierens (SM), one can divide the whole staff of the Organization into two groups: the Manager (the subjects of SM people who solve the problem of the Motivierens) and the ordinary employees (the objects of SM are the actions of the Manager on that). The system of the Motivierens is a solution that combines the interests of the Manager (the carrier of the objectives and the tasks of the company in respect of the staff) and the staff accordingly. Easier to say, the manager want to realize the objectives facing the structure.
