It was a great visit to Dubai last week to attend the Balanced Scorecard Forum 2010. I was so privileged to meet management icons Dr. David Norton and Dr. Robert Kaplan. They shared their philosophical thoughts on the concept which they derived during 1990s, but the wonder is, it is still capable of making marvelous changes in organizations. Harvard Business Review claims that the concept is the most effective tool in the 75 years of its publishing history. The traditional method to measure the performance was based merely on financial factors, but the balance scorecard recommends the inclusion of other main perspectives like people, internal process, customers and finance. All these perspectives should align with the company's strategic goals.

Most of the reputed companies already implemented this approach, and representatives from those companies shared their journey towards achieving the desired results. A great experience.

As far as Dubai is concerned, it is nice place to live, cost of house and transport are comparatively high, but worth it. Just to experience the new metro service i paid 12 Dhs and travelled through 4 stations, quite nice. One of the many advantages of this place is that you can manage with English and it is user friendly.

I went near Burj Khalifa- it's amazing. i was so excited to see the city from the top. unfortunately they have closed for a few days. Then visited the adjoining Dubai Mall, grabbed the guide from information counter- thousands of shops scattered around, guess you need a full day to roam around!! Had nice spicy chicken and rice at Nandos Restaurant at ground level!! Yummy...

i guess this is the right time to visit, most of the hotels have reduced their prices drastically, guys check out!!
