BUS 475 Week 4 Strategic Plan Part 3: Balanced Scorecard and Communication Plan
Identify key trends, assumptions, and risks in the context of your final business model.
Develop the strategic objectives for your new division of the existing business in a balanced scorecard format in the context of key trends, assumptions, and risks.The strategic objectives are measures of attaining your vision and mission. As you develop them, consider the vision, mission, and values for your business and the outcomes of your SWOTT analysis and supply chain analysis.
Consider the following four quadrants of the balanced scorecard when developing your strategic objectives:

  • Shareholder Value or Financial Perspective, includes strategic objectives in areas such as:




    • Market share

    • Revenues and costs

    • Profitability

    • Competitive position




  • Customer Value Perspective, includes strategic objectives in areas such as:




    • Customer retention or turnover

    • Customer satisfaction

    • Customer value




  • Process or Internal Operations Perspective, includes strategic objectives in areas such as:




    • Measure of process performance

    • Productivity or productivity improvement

    • Operations metrics

    • Impact of change on the organization




  • Learning and Growth (Employee) Perspective, includes strategic objectives in areas such as:




    • Employee satisfaction

    • Employee turnover or retention

    • Level of organizational capability

    • Nature of organizational culture or climate

    • Technological innovation



Develop at least three strategic objectives for each of the four balanced scorecard areas identified (Financial, Customer, Process, Learning and Growth). Your objectives should be selected, in part, based on an evaluation of a number of potential alternatives to the issues and/or opportunities identified in the SWOTT Analysis paper and table you completed in Week 3.
Base your solutions on a ranking of alternative solutions that includes an identification of potential risks and mitigation plans, and a stakeholder analysis that includes mitigation and contingency strategies. You should also incorporate the ethical implications of your solutions into your selection.

  • For each strategic objective, develop a metric and target using a balanced scorecard format. (For example, a strategic objective in the shareholder or Financial Perspective is to increase market share. A metric to actually measure this strategic objective of market share increase is, "The percentage of increase in market share." The target is the specific number to be achieved in a particular time period. The target for the metric of "Increase market share" could be "Increase market share by 2% for each of the next 3 years" of an increase of 2% per year for 3 years.)


Outline a brief communication plan discussing how you will communicate the company's strategic objectives that includes the following:

  • Define the purpose.

  • Define the audience.

  • Identify the channel(s) of communication and why you selected that channel.


Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word strategic objectives summary.  Include your balanced scorecard and its impact on all stakeholders, and the communication plan.  
Format paper consistent with APA guidelines including an introduction, APA headings, and a conclusion. Cite any reference material used. Ensure any tables are embedded in the paper. I expect one single artifact to be turned in for this assignment. 
 
BUS 475 Week 5 Peer Review Analysis         
Share drafts of the Business Model and Strategic Plan, Part III Individual assignments from Week 4 with all team members. Continue reviewing 1 or 2 team member's drafts and review as a team this week. By the end of this week, all team members' papers should have been reviewed at least once.  Provide feedback that team members can incorporate into their drafts.
Write a synopsis of no more than 350 words summarizing what the team has learned from the review and discussion. I am looking for lessons learned from the reviews and how the papers could be improved. All team members shall provide an input to the final synopsis. The author(s) of the paper(s) under review should provide a  brief statement about how the peer reviews helped them improve their writing skills.
As this is a team paper, the use of first person is not allowed.
 
BUS 475 Week 5 CAREER CONNECTION: Final Strategic Plan
Write a 700- to 1,050-word section (this is not the total length of the paper) for your business model and strategic plan in which you add your strategies and tactics to implement and realize your objectives, measures, and targets.

  • Include marketing and information technology strategies and tactics.

  • Develop at least three methods to monitor and control your proposed strategic plan, being sure to analyze how the measures will advance organizational goals financially and operationally.

  • Determine the best possible options for evaluating the strategic plan.

Write a 350-word executive summary defining the new division of existing business. Share your Vision, Mission, final business model, and value proposition, and list your key assumptions, risks, and change management issues. Quantify the growth and profit opportunity and planned impact on various stakeholders.
Note: Any investor should be eager to meet with you after reading your executive summary. An executive summary is not the conclusion of the paper. I will provide further information about what I expect for this assignment late in the course. 
Using the University of Phoenix Business Model and Strategic Planning Outline as a guide, combine Parts 1, 2, and 3 of your completed business model strategic plan with your Final Business Plan Model assignment and Executive Summary. This includes the Business Model, Vision, Mission, Values, SWOT Analysis, Supply Chain Analysis, Balanced Scorecard, and Communication Plan from prior weeks. Your consolidated final strategic plan should be 4,200 to 5,250 words in length.
The final artifact should follow the following order:
