To get ready:

Consider the various applications of scorecards and dashboards described in this week’s Learning Resources and media presentation.
Consider how these measurement systems and methods influence organizational goal setting in terms of overall performance and financial stability.
Investigate the key indicators used in scorecards and dashboards, as well as the external quality standards against which they are compared.
Consider this: What do the metrics in the balanced scorecard and dashboard mean for my organization and nursing practice? Has my organization set goals for these metrics, and are they being met?
