Nothing! Actually, that is not quite true. In QuickScore you can auto-generate Strategy Maps. The two products use exactly the same code base but slightly different menu headings that reflect the language of either the Balanced Scorecard Methodology or a more general business language. For example, QuickScore will use terms like ‘Balanced Scorecard’ where Scoreboard will use ‘Scorecard. QuickScore will use the term ‘Measure’ where Scoreboard will use ‘KPI’. The main terminology differences are:
- Balanced Scorecards — Scorecards
- Perspective — Key Performance Area
- Theme — Generic Item
- Objective — Objective
- Measure — KPI
The other difference is that with Scoreboard you can ask the software providers to include your own terminology in the menus if you want. So for example, if in your company uses the term ‘Metric’ instead of KPI, the term can be substituted.
