The pharmaceutical division of a diversified company has been asked to develop a Balanced Scorecard. Research and development projects take about ten years to bring a new product to the marketplace and the division depends on good relations and active feedback from its customers for continued success. But currently, the division is evaluated by meeting monthly financial objectives. The case describes an early and less-than-successful attempt to develop a Balanced Scorecard encompassing financial, customer, internal process, and innovation perspectives.
