Would you add or take away any dimensions to the balanced scorecard for a US Healthcare Organization? What happens if the board ignores a dimension? Can management
prepare plans that improve all dimensions of the scorecard, or are some dimensions permanently in conflict? What should the board do if a dimension is below benchmark
