A common misconception about performance management is that focuses on “what happened”, providing internal information via dashboards with drill down capability, with an emphasis on "slicing and dicing" past performance data

In reality performance management is really all about performance improvement, using analytics to go beyond "what happened" to "why did it happen" and then to "how can we influence what will happen"

This fast-paced webinar starts with an overview of responsibility centers and contribution margin analysis, discusses how Activity Based Costing be utilized to enhance management understanding, and how the Balanced Scorecard can be used to focus management attention.

Learning Objectives

After attending this event you will be able to:
Identify and explain different types of responsibility centers, and the segments organizations use to evaluate performance.
Explain the issues with common cost allocation.
Define elements of ABC such as cost pool, cost driver, activity driver, resource driver, and non-value-added activity, and the linkage between activities and cost pools.
Identify and describe the characteristics of a successful implementation and use of a balanced scorecard.
