Really relevant. Working on an interactive strategy for a non-profit arts organization, and this was a fantastic manual. Good to have read the first couple of chapters of Balanced Scorecard first, but not necessary.
Gaining the benefits of the balanced scorecard for your agency

Government and nonprofit agencies are not always familiar with common business management tools. For such organizations, Paul R. Niven defines the Balanced Scorecard and provides a guide on how to adapt and implement it, demonstrating how agency managers can identify and set up the measurements they need. His language is clear and instructive, and he includes illustrations and a summary at the end of each chapter. Nothing in this book
Not a book to be read straight through! It's best to use this as a guide to improving practices. While the information it contains seems intuitive, it is the way of organizing it that is most revolutionary. Our agency is implementing the procedure rather avidly, and I believe it will be beneficial.
