The objective of this chapter is to understand the level of impact that implementing a balanced score card can have on organisations, and the factors that contribute to such impact; the research agrees that the BSC is an effective performance measurement system. The result of the research suggests that the quality of the knowledge and the understanding of the BSC within an organisation is a major determinant to the level of positive impact that implementing the BSC can have on an organisation. This research concluded that the same principle applies to any performance measurement and performance improvement initiatives, and that non BSC implemented firms are not necessary worse-off than BSC implemented firms from a performance perspective. Only few numbers of organisations were sampled. These sampled organisations are not a complete representation of the rest. The research acknowledges that the sources of information under which conclusions and assumptions were made were not based on primary sources. It is possible these data may not fully reflect the current state of all sampled organisations in this research.
