Balanced Scorecard in Action: Sightsavers
Sightsavers work with local, regional, national and international partners and governments to distribute treatments that help prevent disease, carry out eye operations, advocate for disability rights and improve health services to create sustainable development projects. The organisation is one of only nine charities ranked as ‘high performance’ by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), and are one of US evaluator GiveWell‘s top charities. Maintaining this high-profile status means reporting on the effective use of funds and progress of projects is a fundamental part of their operation.
Sightsavers utilise a Balanced Scorecard solution from Intouch to offer their stakeholders real time, drillable evaluation and monitoring of their fund and programme performance. Each stakeholder will have their own measure of success and will want to understand how their funds have been used to best effect. The Balanced Scorecard allows both sides to monitor the progress and performance of specific grants and projects based on tailored metrics which merge together Sightsavers own corporate and strategic objectives and the contractual obligations and success measures put forward by their donors.
KPIs and High-level Objectives
Balanced Scorecard from Intouch Business provides a highly flexible and entirely individual at-a-glance update on your KPIs and high-level objectives. Linking and aggregating data from multiple sources, Balanced Scorecard allows you to create a visual analysis of performance against target, whether financial, operational or strategic.
Balanced Scorecard removes costly and time-consuming manual reporting and can be used to inform internal teams and external stakeholders alike. Each status within the dashboard layout is underpinned by its own unique set of KPI’s, reflecting your own corporate metrics or those placed on you by external donors.
Transparency and Confidence for Donors and Partners
Making these details visible to stakeholders and allowing drill down function creates transparency. This provides confidence and encourages investors as they can see how well specific projects or programmes are performing. Not only does this meet a core requirement for accountability and governance but it can also help to secure future funding.
