Professional Certification

Utilising BSI’s approach & process, the BSS Africa Certification Programs are hands-on workshops taught by highly experienced facilitating consultants and designed to enable anyone involved with developing a balanced scorecard or KPI system to act as a coordinating change agent/internal consultant. Instructors work closely with each participant to help them learn how to apply the concepts in their own organizations. The programs are short on dry lecture & academic theory and long on hands-on team exercises and interactive discussion for maximum adult learning, engagement, retention and fun. Rather than reviewing frustrating examples that don’t explain how an organization accomplished their results, participants walk through simple methodologies and master the practical steps in applying strategic planning, balanced scorecard, and performance measurement & management concepts to meet the challenges facing a real-world organization.
