The Spanish edition of the prestigious Harvard Deusto Business Review of June 2011 (# 202/2011), has published a white paper by three of our consultants on the application of tools such as Balanced Scorecard and Strategy Maps for Cluster development .
The work is based on actual experience and the definition and implementation of techniques for development of complex membership-type organizations like clusters.
In a business network like the Spanish, the role of cooperation across clusters and regional and sector-based systems of innovation is a key factor for improving the competitiveness of these companies, who must learn to cooperate and compete simultaneously in a continuous changing environment. Tools like the Balanced Scorecard and Strategy Maps proved very useful in managing and aligning the strategic objectives of all components of a cluster.
