Digitised Job Scorecards


Job Scorecard


What is a Job Scorecard?

A job scorecard is tool that provides clear goals, expectations, and feedback in the form of a score so that a new or existing member of the team can objectively measure fit or contribution to the company and own success. 


Let's begin with a few simple questions:

  • Are performance reviews a difficult and complicated process for the team you manage or company you work at?
  • Are reviews a time consuming and awkward process where you work?
  • Can you ramp up the performance review process to happen two or even four times a year if needed for a high performance compliance management role?
  • Do you rely solely on a CV check, interview and possibly a psychometric test to assess how well your company and someone new fits?
  • If you are a university student or a job applicant, are you frustrated with the lack of feedback or being able to objectively assess how well you truly fit a role?
  • Would you like to identify what are some of the skills holding you back from succeeding in a role?

If you answer yes to any of the questions above then read on! 



Job scorecards have been around a while. Few companies however know how to leverage them effectively as a tool for competitive advantage.

Of the few companies that do use scorecards and a lean approach, most use a manual or paper based system, limiting speed and scoring efficiency as well as flexibility of use.
