Development of a logistics balanced scorecard

As I mentioned in my last post profitability, structural, productivity and quality oriented ratios are common objectives in logistic strategies. In order to control logistics activities performance indicators need to report all relevant information to show trends and developments. Within a balanced scorecard logistics management has the opportunity to match strategic objectives and KPIs. This is the first and most important step before implementing a balanced scorecard. If management just focuses on "easy to measure" KPIs which are not connected to the logistics strategy a balanced scorecard just hides key problems. Furthermore, taken actions to improve the wrong KPIs have no positive impact on the strategic goals. In consequence time and effort are wasted.

In consequence, a huge amount of big companies lead their business by concentrating on less than ten main KPIs. Nevertheless lower management levels as well as single departments need to define own, more process oriented performance indicators to realize continuous improvements and support the company's strategic objectives.
