Any organizations face daily challenges whether they are for-profit or non-profit. They try to achieve their goals by putting a system for monitoring their daily working process with their strategic plan and assessing the outcomes for achieving the organization’s mission. Non-profit organizations differ from profit-driven organizations because they have defined themselves around their mission or services rather than on financial returns. This is why the services provided by such organizations are highly intangible and difficult to measure. The Balanced Scorecard measures the performance of an organization, regardless of its nature, by using four perspectives; tangible asset- Financial and intangible assets; Customer, Internal Process and Learning and Growth in balance to assure that all the work elements are covered.
