You’ve always been able to summarize an entire scorecard into a single objective on your scorecard. That’s a really handy way to ensure the progress of a child scorecard is visible in a simplified manner to the parent team.
In this release we recognize that parents don’t always want to know everything their children are doing, so we added the ability to create a new summary objective and pick and choose which objectives on which child scorecards to summarize as the progress of this summary objective.
The four perspectives that guide creation of objectives for a scorecard will usually include a perspective known as Learning & Improvement, which is meant to hold objectives that move the organization forward, building new capacity and capability. The parent, though, may only want to summarize the Customer Focus objectives, or the Financial objectives. Now that’s possible! Create a new Summary Objective, title it something that makes sense to you. Then check mark the objectives presented in the list, and save the choices.
To summarize, feel free to summarize objectives at will.
As with every release, our engineers are fixing bugs, refining buttons, and sometimes moving buttons around so you can find them regardless of the dimensions of your browser window. Isn’t it nice to know we have folks shrinking and growing their browser window just to discover oddities you’ll probably never experience? It’s the summation of their work that improves your ability to achieve your goals with MyObjectives.
